I heard this song at a session last night, but I wasn't able to get the title from the person who sung it. It's a Scottish song about a girl called Jessie (or possibly Jenny!) getting married, and how that will cause problems at the mill where she works.
The chorus is;
Hori Horo
(Hori Horo)
Her Daddy O
(Her Daddy O)
Hori Horo
(Hori Horo)
Her Daddy O
(Her Daddy O)
Hori Horo
Her Daddy O
Jessies Getting Married O

The song is "The Spinner's Wedding" and is most beautifully sung by Ray Fisher on "The Iron Muse."

Hurrah, Hurroo, a Daddie O

-- Tom

THE SPINNER'S WEDDING

(Words and music by Mary Brooksbank)

The gaffer's looking worried,
The flett's a' in a steer,
Jessie Brodie's getting mairit
An' the morn she'll no be here,

Ha Ray a row, a daddy O,
Ha ray a row, with a daddy O,
Ha Ray a row, a daddy O,
Jessie's gettin' mairit O.


The helper and the piecer
Went doon the toon last nicht,
Tae buy their wee bit present,
Jist tae mak her hame look bricht.

They bocht a chiny tea set,
A chanty fu o' saut,
A bonnie coloured carpet,
A kettle an' a pot.

The shifters they're a-dancin,
The spinners singin tae,
The gaffer's standin watchin,
But there's nothin he can dae.

Here's best wishes tae ye lassies,
Standin at yer spinnin frame,
May ye aye hae full an' plenty,
In yer wee bit hame.

Ye'll no mak muckle siller,
Nae matter hoo ye try,
But hoard ye love an' loyalty,
That's what money canna buy.

Mary Brooksbank's tune and phrasing are the ones I'm familiar with. Ray Fisher sang Mary's song very differently. Notation from her singing is also included.
