My Love's In Germanie

  • (Hector McNeil)

    My love's in Germanie, send him hame, send him hame
    My love's in Germanie, send him hame
    My love's in Germanie, fighting for Royalty
    He'll ne'er his Jeannie see, send him hame, send him hame
    He'll ne'er his Jeannie see, send him hame

    He's brave as brave can be, send him hame, send him hame
    He's brave as brave can be, send him hame
    He's brave as brave can be, he'd rather fa' than flee
    His life is dear tae me, send him hame, send him hame
    His life is dear tae me, send him hame

    I fear he'll ne'er come hame, Wullie's slain, Wullie's slain
    I fear he'll ne'er come hame, Wullie's slain
    He'll ne'er come o'er the sea, tae his love and ain countrie
    This warld's nae mair for me, Wullie's gane, Wullie's gane
    This warld's nae mair for me, Wullie's slain

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by The Tannahill Weavers)

    Tune: Ye Jacobites By Name

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1927:] Song by Hector McNeil, acc. to Ord, Bothy Songs

  • [1959:] The 'patriotic' song glorifying war and the folk-song are mutually contradictory. [This] is much more typical of the reaction of the ordinary folk than Rule Britannia. The death of our young men overseas is a theme that has been far too common in our Scottish history and our makars, past and present, have found little pleasure in the fact. (Norman Buchan, Weekly Scotsman, May 7)
