Lyrics composed by
John Henderson on the 12th of November, 2011,
to the cowboy song, 'There's
A New Moon Over My Shoulder'.
There's a lassie in cauld an weet Scotland,
Sich a braw quine wi bonnie blue een
Fa I am howpin wull jyne me in Boston,
An ae day seen be mair nor a freen.
Sae I wull screeve a plea, thit jist micht fin oot gif she'll
Tae be ma wife here athort the sea, an a mither ae day tee;
Here I wyte fur ... her answer in Boston
Mebbe sayin she's comin tae me.
Losh! I think I see the mail-man wi letters in his han,
An yin seems like an airmail I can sicht fae faar I stan.
Bit he's noo aff, ower the roddie ...
Nae tae ma hoose, sae naithin fur me .....
Nae tae ma hoose
Och, naithin fur me!
