Days of Yore

Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 3rd of December, 2007
to Robert S. Ambrose's 1876 tune, 'Dulce Domum'.

Fan beddit doon maist nichts,
Ah re-caa days o yore,
Aft o hame, bleed-kin an freens
Mair noo ivver Ah've deen afore.

Mem'ries o waesome days,
Fan ma spunk wis streetchit sair,
Oontill GWEED's wirds thit cam tae myn
Lufted ma hert aince mair.

Mem'ries o graun blythe days,
Fan ma speerits wur oan hich,
Garred me thenk aa ma licky starns
GWEED hid alloo'd bittie sich.

Hame micht be hine awa farrer nor lan or sea,
Far ist dis shair cam an aft sair-lik tribble me;
Bit fan ens ma airthly wye an Ah bid guid-bye,
Ma howp GWEED ... is aye tae bide wi YE.

Fan beddit an nae slep wull come,
Thochts tirn tae days o yore;
Aft syne hame, bleed-kin an freens, an YE,
Mair nor they eest tae afore.
