Lyrics composed by John
Henderson on the 9th of November, 2009, to Jerome Kern's music for the song, 'Till
The Clouds Roll By'.
The nicht lift .....
ow'r oor scaar-tap kirkton Heeld coorse bleck cloods, mony
The hivvens thunner'd, an maist o' us wonner'd Gin we wid live, or, dee? Sae we coor'd doon, in oor cots sae
saff, mebbe fae Gweed's wraith; Wid He spare us ? Fowks jist peer an
strang in ... the ... Faith.
Syne the reyns cam ....
an they drookit, droonit Aa oor craps, ripe an redd fur maw'n; Hames wur weesht-oot, yit the reyns aye
skaled-oot Och fit
a nicht, till, dawn. Bit we coor'd oan, wi' oor hames in waater, Sypit weet, oorlich, at a loss; Till wi first-licht, we gaed oot tae
lown-ness An fun
fit ... a ... soss!
