Drumshanty Lyr Req: I'm awa tae the garret (15) Lyr Add: I AM GAUN TO THE GARRET 03 Sep 07


Here y'are:
^^
I AM GAUN TO THE GARRET

"My mither has three butter platies."
"Platies?" "Ay, platies."
"My mither has three butter platies
And she's nae ither dochters but me."

"But I maun gang to the garret"
"The garret?" "Aye, the garret.
But I maun gang to the garret
Since there's nae bonnie laddie for me."


"My father's a wee white horsie."
"A horsie?" "Aye, a horsie."
" My father's a wee white horsie
And he's nae ither dochters but me."

"But I maun gang to the garret"
"The garret?" "Aye, the garret.
But I maun gang to the garret
Since there's nae bonnie laddie for me."


"My mither has forty white shillins."
"White shillins?" "Aye, white shillins."
" My mither has forty white shillins
And she's nae ither dochters but me."

"But I maun gang to the garret"
"The garret?" "Aye, the garret.
But I maun gang to the garret
Since there's nae bonnie laddie for me."


"But down in yon howe there's a miller."
"A miller?" "Aye, a miller."
"But down in yon howe there's a miller
And he sometimes comes and sees me."

"So noo I'm gaun to be mairrit."
"Mairrit?" "Aye, mairrit."
"So noo I'm gaun tae be mairrit
Before that my beauty decay."

I'm not totally convinced by that last line, to tell the truth, but I can't remember what Anne sang if it wasn't that. Ord doesn't provide any notes about the song, but there are dots for it.
