The Carls o' Dysart

traditional, arranged by the Tannahill Weavers
Short and sweet.  Is this a glorious drinking song or an extremely happy work song?  The moral of this song seems to be eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we may die.  Sounds good to us!
 

LYRICS:

Up wi' the carls o' Dysart
And the lads o' Buckhaven
And the kimmers o' Largo
And the lassies o' Leven

Chorus:
   Hey ca' thro', ca' thro' for we
   Hae mickle a do
   Hey ca' thro', ca' thro' for we
   Hae mickle a do

We hae songs to sing
And we hae stories to tell
We hae pints tae bring
And we hae pennies tae spend

Chorus

We'll live a' oor days
And them that comes behin'
Let them do the like
And spend the gear they win

Chorus
