Gretna Green

Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 16th of February, 2009
to part of Carey Morgan's 1916 music called, 'La Confessional'.

Fan ma jo an I cud nae git wad
Her faither bein 'gin,
We seen up an gaed tae Gretna Green,
As faist as we cud rin;
An syne tae the smith in his smiddy hoose
Pledg'd oor troth ow'r his studdy,
Jinkin ony fell sin ...
An .. clash fae lood moos back in oor kirkton...Ay!
