Anne Cormack Lyr Req: My Ain Folk (9) RE: Lyric Req: My Ain folk 17 Feb 97

Marie, this is a very popular song in Scotland and has been recorded many times by the likes of Moira Anderson, hKenneth McKellar, Andy Stewart and the Alexander Brothers.

Here is the second verse:

2. A bonnie lassie's greetin' though she tries to stay the tears,
And sweet will be our meeting after mony weary years,
How my mother will caress me when I'm standing by her side,
Now she prays that heaven will bless me though the stormy seas divide.

CHORUS: And it's Oh! but I'm longing for my ain folk,
Tho' they be but lowly puir and plain filk,
I am far across the sea, but my heart will ever be,
At hame in dear auld Scotland wi' my ain folk.
