Drumshanty Lyr Req: Festival of Keith song (8) RE: Lyr Req: Festival of Keith song 19 Mar 07


"Hud er gyan" - well, I've alway understood it to mean something like "keep going" or "keep it up".

A scaffie is a binman and a docken, I think, is a dock leaf, but "dinna care a docken" would mean something like "don't care much for".

I'm originally from the north-east but any Doric I might have had was Englished out of me at school. So, there's others kicking about the forum that know more than me.
