about

Traditional Scottish ballad, followed by a song by Pete Seeger, the tune of which is also traditional Scottish (Well May the Keel Row)

lyrics

Why weep ye by the tide, Lady
Why weep ye by the tide?
I'll wed ye tae my youngest son
And ye shall be his bride
And ye shall be his bride, Lady
Sae comely tae be seen
But aye, she let a tear doon fa'
For Jock O' Hazeldean

Ah, let this willfull grief be done
And dry your cheek sae pale
My son is Earl o' Errington
And Laird o' Langleydale
His step is first in peaceful hall
His sword in battle keen
But aye, she let a tear doon fa'
For Jock O' Hazeldean

For chain o' gold ye shall nae lack
Nor ribbons tae bind yer hair
Nor mettled hound, nor managed hawk
Nor palfrey fresh and fair
And ye the foremost of them all
Shall ride, our forest Queen
But aye, she let a tear doon fa'
For Jock O' Hazeldean

The kirk was decked at mornin' tide
The candles glimmered fair
The priest and bridegroom await the bride
And dame and knight were there
They sought her by her bower and hall
But the lady was nae seen
For she's over the border and awa'
Wi' Jock o' Hazeldean

Well may the world go
The world go, the world go
Well may the world go
When I'm far away

Well may the skiers turn,
The swimmers turn, the lovers burn
Peace may the generals learn
When I'm far away
