Bud Savoie oxen ploughing songs (32) RE: oxen ploughing songs 23 Mar 00


Robert Burns: [NB: the operative word is pronounced "plooman"]

O the ploughman lad is a bonnie lad, his mind is ever true, jo. His gairters knit below his knee, his bonnet it is blue, jo.

Then up an' wa' the ploughman lad, hi, my merry ploughman. O' a' the trades that e'er I saw, commend me to the ploughman.

Snaw white stockin's on his legs, siller buckles glancin' The bonniest sicht that e'er I saw was the ploughman laddie dancin'

Of course, there is no specific mention of oxen (or "owsen") here.
