The Piper o' Dundee

  • (Trad)

    And wasnae he a roguey
    A roguey, a roguey
    And wasnae he a roguey
    The piper of Dundee

    The piper cam' tae your toon
    Tae give a tune, tae give a tune
    The piper cam' tae your toon
    And he played bonnilie
    He played a dance the laird tae please      
    A spring brent new frae yont the seas
    And he gie'd his bag a wheeze
    And played anither key

    He played The Welcome Owre the Main
    And Ye'se Be Fou and I'se Be Fain
    Auld Stuart's Back Again
    Wi' muckle mirth and glee         
    He played The Kirk he played The Queen      
    The Mullin Dhu and Chevalier
    Lang Away But Welcome Here
    Sae sweet, sae bonnilie

    It's some gat swords and some gat nane         
    And some were dancing mad their lane
    And mony a vow o' war was ta'en
    That night at Amulrie
    There was Tullibardine and Burleigh
    And Struan, Keith and Ogilvie
    And brave Carnegie, wha but he
    The piper of Dundee

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by The McCalmans)
