The Cobbler I am a cobbler airy That's lately gained my freedom-o I fell in love wi' a wee broon lass I'm afraid she will not hae me-o Whack dee do de dum Whack dee do de doody Whack do do de dum Kate, you are my darling I am a shoemaker to trade I'll work in rainy weather O, I have made two pair today From a side and a half of leather "If I consent to be your bride, Pray, how for me will you provide?" "I have twa coos and a heifer And I'll stay always by your side" I have five pounds of money And a good store of leather And I've five pair o' auld shoon And I'll batter them all together Go hand me down my pegging awl I stuck it right up yonder Go hand me down my sewing awl To peg and sew my leather O, I have lost my ball of wax And where will I go find it-o It's enough to set an auld man mad O, here it's when I mind it-o My prentices and journeymen It's they are always mending-o And I'm a cobbler to my trade And I am always spending-o printed in Sam Henry Songs of the People SOF
