Does anyone know the words to this popular scottish tune? My brother-in-
law (a non-dancer!) has for years been asking me if I know them and I
haven't been able to track them down anywhere.<
"Oh such a stramash was there to see
Five miles away you could hear the melee
Even the domesticated animals were consumed with glee
At the cleansing of George's cow-shed."
-Andy Stewart's version of the anglicised chorus.
The rest of the words would be unintelligible even if printed - ye have t=
be fluent in the Doric
PS since writing the above and before sending it, I find two complete, an=
completely unconnected versions have been posted - what a wonderful list
this is! I have learned that Geordie at different times had a cow-byre A=
a pig-byre. Another gem of folk-lore trivia.
