Lyrics

As I was walking, a alane
I spied twa corbies, they were making mane
Een unto the other did say
Where will ye gang? will we dine the day?
Een unto the other did say
Where will ye gang? will we dine the day?

It's in ahind yon oul fail dyke
I wot there lies a new slaing knight
Naebody knows that he lies there
But his hawk and his hound and his lady fair
Naebody knows that he lies there
But his hawk and his hound and his lady fair

His hawk is to the hunding gane
His hound to bring all the wild fowl hame
His lady's ta'en another mate
So we can mak our dinner sweet
His lady's ta'en another mate
So we can mak our dinner sweet

It's you will sit on his white horse bane
I'll pick out his bonny blue e'en
Wi a lock of his golden hair
We'll thak our nest when it grows bare
Wi a lock of his golden hair
We'll thak our nest when it grows bare

There's mony's ane for him makes mane
Naebody's kens where he has gane
Through his bare bones as they lie there
The wind will blow aye forever mare
Through his bare bones as they lie there
The wind will blow aye forever mare
