Frank in the swamps Lyr Req: Tibbie Fowler / Tibby Fowler (7) RE: Tibbie Fowler 03 May 98


But and ben is kitchen and living room, although it can easily be taken as in & out, or back & forth. Puin is pulling. Lugs are ears. Siller is silver (money). How much of this song are you having trouble with? I'm not a quick or patient typist.

Scots who are working to defend and revitalize the Scots language (not Gaelic and CERTAINLY not a dialect of English) are also dispensing with the business of putting in apostraphes where letters are missing in the English tongue. As far as singing goes, my personal opinion is to please yourself. Sing with as close to a Scots mou as you can, change it to your own vernacular, or try for a compromise. If you sing a good song, and people take exception because they don't like your pronunciation, let 'em go hang.

Here are a few links which will be of interest, and very helpful.

"htttp://www" of course for all.

ndirect.co.uk/~love/index.html

geocities.com/Athens/1615/rhahn/lowlands_scots.html

If I screwed up any of the urls, then I grant you "ane or twa skelps tae ma pow". But please don't be too mean.

Frank i.t.s.
