TANNAHILL WEAVERS LYRICS glossary index are ye sleeping maggie tannahill weavers
Ferrickside/The Laundry at Drummond Castle
Traditional, arranged by the Tannahill Weavers

As I came in by Ferrickside on a May morning
I spied Willie Mackintosh an 'oor afore the dawnin'
Turn again, turn again, turn again I bid ye
If ye burn Auchendoon, Huntly he will heid ye
Heid me, or hing me, they'll never fear me
I'll burn Auchendoon afore the life leaves me.

As I came by Auchendoon, on a May morning
Auchendoon was in a bleeze, an 'oor before the dawnin'
Crawin' crawin' for a' yer crouse crawin'
I've burnt yer crops and tint yer wings
I'll burn Auchendoon an 'oor afore the dawnin'

As I came in by Ferrickside on a May morning
I spied Willie Mackintosh an 'oor afore the dawnin'
Turn again, turn again, turn again I bid ye
If ye burn Auchendoon, Huntly he will heid ye.
