MARION the EWE-BUGHTS 1811 Will ye gae to the ewe bughts, Mar ion, And 4 2 wear in the sheep wi' me? The sun shines sweet, my Mar ion, But nae hauf sae sweet as thee. The sun shines sweet, my Mar ion, But nae hauf sae sweet as thee. 2. My Marion's a bonny lass, The blythe blinks ay in her ee; And fain wad I marry my Marion, Gin Marion wad marry me. 3. There's gowd in your garters, Marion, And silk on your white hause-bane; Fu' fain wad I kiss my Marion, At e'en' when I come hame. 4. I've nine milk ewes, my Marion, A cow, and a brawny quey; I'll gie them a' to my Marion, Just on her bridal day. 5. And yese get a green-sey apron, And waistcoat o' Lon'on brown; Then vow but ye will be vap'rin, When ye gang to the town. 6. I'm young and stout, my Marion; Nane dances like me on the green; And gin ye forsake me, Marion, I'll e'en draw up wi' Jean. 7. Sae put on your pearlings, Marion, Wi' kirtle of the cramasie; And sae soon's my chin has nae hair on, I shall come west, and see thee. HOW BLYTHE HAE I BEEN to the same air 1. How blythe hae I been wi' my Sandy, As we sat in the howe o' the glen! But nae mair can I meet wi' my Sandy, To the banks o' the Rhine he is gane. 2. Alas! that the trumpet's loud clarion Thus draws a' our shepherds afar; O cou'dna the ewe-bughts and Marion Please mair than the horrors o' war! 3. Not a plough in our land has been ganging; The ousen hae stood in their sta'; Nae flails in our barns hae been banging. For mair than a towmond or twa. 4. Waes me, that the trumpet's shrill clarion Thus draws a' our shepherds afar! O, I wish that the ewe-bughts and Marion Could charm frae the horrors o' war. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
