wonderful, LJC!...I have heard Ewan MacColl sing that (on record) for 25+ years...the internet/WWW has given me more 'feeling' for the music in the last 5 years than I had in 20 before that.

Add me to the list of the people who enjoyed the pictures. By the way, I heard that line about "snot" as something like "me snotters fairly on the wain". What does that mean?

The OED gives, as the earliest meaning of "snot", "The snuff of a candle; the burnt part of a candle wick. Now _north. dial._" That sense plausibly extends the previous line: my candle is burnt so far down that the last bit of wick is giving out. A double double-entendre is, of course, still perfectly possible.

Just thought you'd like to know!

Just happened to be sitting here in Kirkcaldy listening to Joe Aitken singing the song when I saw the post. Bothy Ballads may not be known to many catters who don't have connections to the North East of Scotland, but if anyone wanted to hear pure traditional song, there can be no better example. The language used is the Doric language , a dialect, still commonly used by Aberdonians today. The Barnyards of Delgaty is a good example, but there is no better way to hear the songs than by the worthies who regularly compete at festivals all over the North East. They are truly authentic and sing from the heart.

The Sleepytoon CDs of Bothy Ballads is, IMHO, marvelous. And available from CAMSCO Music, of course.

I've heard the sond sung by Old Blind Dog and Gaelic Storm. I love the tune and the lyrics but I can't translate the refrain. Can someone help?

I love this site, I'm only tapping into my strong scottish roots,

The refrain is made up of nonsense words (apart from the repeat of the title, of course, though that doesn't appear, so far as I remember, in older versions): meaningless, so there's nothing to "translate".

I have heard the "chorus' sung without repetition of the title line "Linten adie, tooranadie, lintenadie tooranay, linten adie tooranadie, linten tooran looran lay"...[Hope "phonetics" are near-accurate!]

Ian Campbell used to sing

Rintan addy tooran addy
Rintanaddy tooran aye
Rintan loughran loughran loughran
the Barnyards of Delgaty

he told me once it was his audition piece that he sang to Ewan Maccoll to get his place on the Radio ballads team.

This is also the first track on the excellent 'Resident's Lounge' CD from the Bothy Folk Club which was released not so long ago, with a superb rendition of 'Barnyards...' being sung by the inimitable Clive Pownceby.

It's quite a treasure trove actually including a wonderful original piece called 'On Morecambe Bay' by Kevin Littlewood.

You can buy it on line from Abicat I think for £5. Well worth a listen - and no I'm not a resident, and not on commission, it's just good :-)

You can also have a listen at their webpage, www.myspace.com/bothyfolkclub

Cheers,
Rich.
