The Tamosher

  • (Trad)

    The were twa bonnie lassies and they were dressed in blue
    And they went out some rushes for tae pu'
    And yin o' them caught wee thing before she did return
    And she bundled it and put it in her apron

    The first man that she met was her faither on the stair
    Oh daughter dear daughter what have you got there
    Who gave to you the tamosher to wear the starched gown
    And you bundled it and put it in your apron

    Oh was it to the baker or was it to the clown
    Or was it to the bonnie boy that sails the world around
    Who gave to you the tamosher to wear the starched gown
    And you bundled it and put it in your apron

    It wasn't to the baker it wasn't to the clown
    It was to the bonnie boy that sails the world around
    He gave to me the tamosher to wear the starched gown
    And I bundled it and put it in my apron

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by The Battlefield Band)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1978:] Alan [Reid] learnt this song from 'Tocher' magazine [...]. It was collected from Bessie Whyte, who is of travelling stock but now lives in Montrose. We hope she doesn't mind the slight changes we have made in our arrangement of the song. Bessie says that the "Tamosher is the thing that makes weans [...]." (Notes Battlefield Band, 'At the Front')
