GUEST,Allan S Scots song hush my bastard barnie o (3) Scots song hush my bastard barnie o 06 Nov 08


I have lost the words to a Scots song possibly one of the bothy ballads Some of the lines as follows does anyone have them

The plowmans lads are false and deceiving o
theyl sail away and leave the lassies greeting o

When I was but sweet sixteen and beauty only bloomin o
little little did I think at seventeen I'd be greeting o

Hush ye ba tho i'm your ma the greekin faas your father oh

I believe it was sung by Jean Redpath
