Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 10th of June, 2011
to a tune written by Aberdeenshire's Eddie Edmond called 'John
Fan wannerin lane ow'r tae the kirk,
An the grun faar twa loo'd yins lig,
I wis maist mynfu o' fit they'd gied me,
Sae a guid life I'd mebbe big.
I recaa'd ma faither's bricht twinklin een,
An tee ma mither's saft vyce o' care;
I'd been licky they'd shaw'd me fit wis aaricht
Tae dae in this wirld fyle here.
