Ow'r The Sake O' Somebody


A North-East Doric version by John Henderson of the words of Robert Burns' Song,
'For The Sake o Somebody' ....... to the music of Angus Fitchet's Band.



Ma hert is sair - Ah daurna tell -
Ma hert is sair ow'r Somebody:
Ah cud wauk a winter nicht
Aa ow'r the sake o' Somebody.
Och-ay! ow'r Somebody!
Och-aye! ow'r Somebody!
Ah cud reenge the warl aroon
Ow'r the sake o' Somebody.

Ye Pooers thit smile oan virtuous luv,
Och, sweetly smile oan Somebody!
Frae aa danger kep him/her free,
An sen me saff ma Somebody!
Och-ay! ow'r Somebody!
Och-aye! ow'r Somebody!
Ah wad dae - whit wad Ah nae? -
Ow'r the sake o' Somebody.

For The Sake o Somebody
by Robert Burns

My heart is sairI dare na tell,
My heart is sair for Somebody;
I could wake a winter night
For the sake o Somebody.
O-hon! for Somebody!
O-hey! for Somebody!
I could range the world around,
For the sake o Somebody.

Ye Powers that smile on virtuous love,
O, sweetly smile on Somebody!
Frae ilka danger keep him free,
And send me safe my Somebody!
O-hon! for Somebody!
O-hey! for Somebody!
I wad dowhat wad I not?
For the sake o Somebody.
