Piper of Dundee The piper came to out town, To our town, to our town The piper came to our town And he played bonnielie* He play'd a spring the laird to please A spring brent new from 'yont the seas And then he gae his bags a wheeze And played anither key And wasna he a rougey, a rougey, a rougey And wasna he a rougey, the piper o' Dundee He play'd "The Welcome Ower the Main" And "Ye's Be Fou and I'se be Fain" And "Auld Stuart's Back Again" Wi' muckle mirth and glee He'd play'd "The Kirk", he play'd "The Queer" "The Mullen Dhu" and "Chevalier" And "Lang Awa' But Welcome Here" Sae sweet, sae bonnielie It's some gat swords and some gat nane And some were dancing mad their lane And mony a vow o' weir Was ta'en that night at Amulrie There was Tillibardine, and Burleigh And Struan, Keith, and Olgivie And brave Carnegie, wha' but he, The piper o' Dundee. from Cole, Folksongs of England, Ireland, Scotland, & Wales SOF
