The Wild Lass

  • (Marion Angus / Dave Whyte)

    Hameward you're traivelling in the saft hill rain
    The day lang by that you wearied o' the glen
    Nae ring upon your hand, nae kiss upon your moo'
    Quiet noo
    Nae ring upon your hand, nae kiss upon your moo'
    Quiet, quiet noo

    There's fiddlers an' dancin' and steps gaun by the doors
    Nane o' them sall fret ye in the lang nicht hoors
    Peace come on the wind and peace fa' wi' the dew
    Quiet noo
    Peace come on the wind and peace fa' wi' the dew
    Quiet, quiet noo

    Cauld was the lift aboon ye, the road baith roch an' steep
    Nae farther sall ye wander nor greet yersel' tae sleep
    My ain wild lass, my bonnie-hearted do'e
    Quiet noo
    My ain wild lass, my bonnie-hearted do'e
    Quiet, quiet noo

    ( as sung by Jean Redpath)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1970:] Another of the 'regional' singers, Marion Angus [1866-1946] is the best of one or two women poets of her time, just before the MacDiarmid period, though in [some of her work] she is of national rank. (Penguin Book of Scottish Verse 19)
