GUEST,Ewan McVicar Tune Req: BlueBells Cockle Shells (25) RE: Tune Req: BlueBells Cockle Shells 18 Aug 08


Haud yer tongue, ma bonny lass
Dinna let this pairtin grieve ye
When cockle shells turn silver bells
It's then ah'll come an see ye
From the Trooper and the Maid, sung by Jimmy MacBeath


When co-ckle   shells       turn sil-ver bells
soh soh soh soh-lah-soh-me, me me me me-fah-me-doh
A nice little melodic line, with shells and bells each sung to a four note phrase, from something the rest of which I have long forgotten.
