Robbie Tampson's Smitty My mither ment me auld breeks And oh but they were duddy, And sent me to get Molly shod At Robbie Tampson's smitty. The smitty stands beyont the burn That wimples through the ciockin' Yet every time I pass the door And aye I fa' a-laughin'. Auld Robin was a wealthy carl And had a bonny daughter, So all the lads from far and near And all the country sought her. But what think ye of my exploit The time the mare was shoein'? I slipped up beside the lass And briskly fell awooing. From Maritime Folk Songs, Creighton Collected from Mr. Ernest Bell, Nova Scotia, 1953 DT #671 Laws O12 RG oct96
