Thread Name: Folksongs Appropriate for a Wedding
Subject: RE: FOLKSONGS APPROPRIATE FOR A WEDDING
"She gaun tae be wad tae anither" (or its English equivalent is probably in the data base. Some people sing this verse, which would surely be a hit at any wedding:
The clerk o' the parish, he gied a loud cry
If ye've ony objections, then bring them by,
And I thocht tae masel' guid objections hae I
But I hadnae the will tae confront her.

Then there's always:
"They're burning down the house I was brung up in
And they're yelling come on out and take your bride...
etc., etc.
