Guid Gweed


Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 13th of April, 2013,
to Maceo Pinkard's 1921 music for the song, '
Honey Rose'.

Apenin' Meesic ...

[A Guardian Angel spiks ....]

"Hum a teen .....
Faithfu lass bonny Jean ......
Fyle ye're thrang ......
In the hoose a' day lang .......
Fur yer auld Ma is noo nae nar strang eneugh ... tae dee
A' sic wirk an' aye tak tent o' the twa bairn-ies, tee ...
Syne atween .... keuk an waash aabody's claes ......
Fore yer Pa comes dylt hame tae enjoy some aise .....
Syne bairns, Ma, Pa, an' ye, Jean
Micht sang lood an' lang in teen
A' thegither as daytime tirns tae e'en."

[Jean replees ....]

"Sang's a gift .....

An' aye gies us strength tae sodger oan ilk day .... an' nicht
Tholin' wirk an' bidin' cheery tho' aft sil-ler's ticht ......
Oan oor ferm ..... thit gies mait fur maist days
Sae fan Pa come dylt hame tae enjoy some aise .....

A' thegither weel kennin' Gweed's oor freen."
