The Buchan Turnpike 'Twas in the year auchteen hunn'r and aught A road thro Buchan was made straight An mony a Hielan' lad o' maucht Cam owre the Buchan border. There was some in tartan, some in blue An wekits o' a warlike hue An werena they a strappin crew To put the road in order. Ye'll ken oor foreman Sandy Joss I fear puir man he's gotten the loss I doot his purse'll seen turn boss (empty) If he work lang on our border. From the Greig-Duncan Collection Collected from Alexander Robb RG APR99
