I think you mean the following [from The Joe Gordon Album (Glasgow: Kerr, cop.1959), p. 4, with music in staff and sol-fa]. Traditional melody, it says, words by Joe Gordon, well-known balladeer of the fifties & later.

BONNIE WEE JEANNIE MCCOLL
(Joe Gordon)

[Chorus]
A fine wee lass, a bonnie wee lass, is bonnie wee Jeannie McColl;
I gave her ma mither's engagement ring and a bonnie wee tartan shawl;
I met her at a waddin' in the Co-operative Hall,
I wis the best man and she wis the belle o' the ball.

[1]
The very first night I met her she wis awfy, awfy shy,
The rain cam' poorin' doon, but she wis happy, so wis I.
We ran like mad fur shelter an' we landed up a stair,
The rain cam' poorin' oot o' ma breeks, but och I didna care:
For she's a [cho.]

[2]
Noo I've wad my Jeannie an' bairnies we hiv three,
Twa dochters and a wee, we fellah that sits upon my knee.
They're richt wee holy terrors an' they're never still fur lang,
But they sit and listen every nicht while I sing this song [sic!] Oh it's a [etc.]

If you need the tune, just ask. Fax? Snailmail? I'm not good at these newfangled codes and whatnot. Cheers
Murray
