Jeannie My Dear

  • (Trad)

    Oh Jeannie my dear, would you mairry me
    Oh Jeannie my dear, would you go
    Oh Jeannie my dear, would you mairry me
    Whether you're willint or no

    I've a pottie for bilin' my porridge
    And a skillet for bilin' my whey
    I've a set o' new cups and saucers
    Ay, and a kettle for bilin' my tay

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by Jeannie Robertson)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1984:] Jeannie's was a real love-match with her husband Donald. No wonder this charming little courtship song was one of his favourites. (Hamish Henderson, notes Jeannie Robertson, 'Up the Dee and Doon the Don')

  • [1984:] The first song that ever I learned at my mother's knee. It's a little strathspey. I don't think it was the name, but that was the name she put in it - because it was my name. (Jeannie Robertson, intro 'Up the Dee and Doon the Don')
