weerover Lyr Req: Annie McKelvie (Iain Ingram) (42) Lyr/Tune Add: ANNIE McKELVIE (Iain Ingram) 08 Jul 04


(by Iain Ingram)

Dumbarton's the place where I met Anne McKelvie
Oot walkin alang the Clyde shore
Oh we blethered a while till as evenin was fallin
We walked the road back tae her door

Dae ye fancy a night at the dancin wi me?
The band in the Toon Hall's the finest ye'll see
And if there's no another place you'd raither be,
Then come tae the dance wi me, Annie

She said, "I'd like a few days tae think ower yir proposal
Ma mither wid hiv tae consent"
So we parted that night wae a kiss on her doorstep
Then back hame through Bowling ah went

Oh she finally agreed tae come oot wae me dancing
And travel tae Clydebank by train
On that cauld station platform for hours ah waited
But never seen Annie again

Noo it's oftimes ah've walked by the banks o the Leven
And followed her flow tae the Clyde
And hiv thought o ma day spent wae Annie McKelvie
The lassie that wounded ma pride

(Spelling and punctuation as in Ewan McVicar's compilation of Glasgow songs, "One Singer One Song")
