Barnyards of Delgaty As I cam' in by Turra Market, Turra Market for to fee I fell in wi' a farmer chiel, The Barnyards of Delgaty Lintin addie toorin addie, Lintin addie toorin ee Lintin lowrin, lowrin, lowrin, The barnyards of Delgaty He promised me the ae best pair That ever I set my e'en upon When I gaed to the Barnyards, There was naething there but skin and bone The auld black horse sat on its rump, The auld white mare lay on her wime And for all that I could "Hup" and crack They wouldna rise at yokin' time When I gae to the kirk on Sunday Mony's the bonnie lass I see Sitting by her faither's side And winkin o'er the pews at me I can drink and no be drunk I can fecht and no be slain I can lie wi another man's lass And aye be welcome to my ain Noo my candle is brunt oot My snotter's fairly on the wane Sae fare ye weel ye Barnyards Ye'll never catch me here again _________ refers to a hiring fair where workers contract for a year's labor sung by MacColl (Bothy Ballads and Scottish Popular Song) and Bikel (Bravo Bikel) D
