Robert Burns

John Anderson my jo, John,
   When we were first acquent;
Your locks were like the raven,
   Your bonie brow was brent;
But now your brow is beld, John,
   Your locks are like the snaw;
But blessings on your frosty pow,
   John Anderson my jo! 

John Anderson my jo, john,
   We clamb the hill thegither;
And mony a canty day John,
   We’ve had wi’ ane anither;
Now we maun totter down, John,
   And hand in hand we’ll go;
And sleep thegither at the foot,
   John Anderson my jo!

Footnote:  The ‘drawing-room ‘version of a song celebrating a long and happy relationship – for the raunchier version, more suited for the folk circuit, please consult a copy of ‘The Merry Muses’, as it is too ‘blue’ for the Flag!
