Chorus
O Gude yill comes & gude yill goes,
Gude yill gars me sell my hose,
Sell my hose & pawn my shoon,
^For gude Gude yill keeps my heart aboon! ----
1
I havehad sax owsen in a pleugh,
And they drew ^teugh & a weel eneugh;
I drank them a' , ane by ane,
For Ggude yill keeps my heart aboon. ----
Gude yill &c.
2
I had forty shillin in a closet,
Gude yill gart me pyke them out;
That gear should moul I thought a sin,
Gude yill keeps my heart aboon. ----
Gude yill &c.
3
The meikle pot upon my back,
Unto the yill-house I did pack,
It melted a' wi' the heat o' the moon,
Gude yill keeps my heart aboon. ----
Gude yill comes &c.
4
Gude yill hands me bare & busy,
Gars me jink wi' the servant hizzie;
Stand in the kirk when I hae done,
Gude yill keeps my heart aboon. ----
Gude yill &c.
5
I wish their fa' may be a gallows,
Winna gie gude yill to gude fallows,
And keep a soup till the afternoon,
Gude yill keeps my heart aboon. ----
O Gude yill comes, & gude yill goes,
Gude yill gars me sell my hose,
Sell my hose & pawn my shoon,
Gude yill keeps my heart aboon. ----
