lyrics

As I was walking all alane

I heard twa corbies makin' mane

And t'ane untae the t'ither did say-o

Whaur sall we gang and dine today-o

Whaur sall we gang and dine today



It's in ahind yon auld fail dike

I wot there lies a new slain knight

And naebody kens that he lies there-o

But his hawk and his hound and his lady fair-o

His hawk and his hound and his lady fair



His hawk has tae the hunting gane

His hound tae fetch the wild cock hame

His lady's ta'en anither mate-o

So we maun mak' oor dinner swate-o

We maun mak' oor dinner swate



It's ye'll sit on his white hoosebane

And I'll pike oot his bonny blue e'en

And wi' a lock o' his gauden hair-o

We'll theeck oor nest when it grows bare-o

Theeck oor nest when it grows bare



It's many a ane for him mak's mane

But nane sall ken whaur he is gane

And o'er his bones when they lie bare-o

The wind sall blaw forever mair-o

The wind sall blaw forever mair
