the DAYS O' LANGSYNE 1811 When war had broke in on the peace o' auld men, And frae 8 6 Chel sea to arms they were sum mon'd a gain, Twa vet' rans grown grey, wi' their mus kets sair foil'd, Wi' a sigh, were re lat ing how hard they had toil'd. The drum it was beat ing to fight they in cline, But ay they look'd back on the days o' lang syne. 2. Hech, Davie, man, weel thou remembers the time, When twa brisk young callans, and just in our prime. The prince led us, conquer'd, and shaw'd us the way, And mony a braw chield we turn'd cauld on that day. Still again I wad venture this auld trunk o' mine, Could our gen'ral but lead, or we fight like langsyne. 3. But garrison duty is a' we can do; Tho' our arms are worn weak, yet our hearts are still true: We car'd na for dangers by land or by sea, For time is turn'd coward, and no you and me. And though at our fate we may sadly repine, Youth winna return, nor the strength o' langsyne. 4. When after our conquests, it joys me to mind, How thy Jean caress'd thee, and my Meg was kind; They shar'd o' our danger, though ever sae hard, Nor car'd we for plunder, when sic our reward. Ev'n now they're resolv'd baith their hames to resign, And to share the hard fate they were us'd to langsyne. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
