about

2. LOVELY MOLLY TRAD. ARR. FRAME / VASS / MASSIE / BURTON From the Greig Duncan Folk Collection Vol 5. This great song was taught to me at a ballad workshop by Anne Neilson and Gordeanna McCulloch more than a few years ago.

lyrics

Lovely Molly


As Molly was milking her yowes on a day
Oh by came young Jamie who to her did say
Your fingers are nimble the yowes they are free
We’ll ca the yowes tae the knowes lovely Molly.

Oh where is your father the young man did say
Oh where is your father my lovely young Mae
He’s up in the green fields awaiting for me
We’ll ca the yowes tae the knowes lovely Molly

My father’s a shepherd herds sheep on yon hill
If you get his sanction I will go at your will
And if he does grant it, right glad I will be
We’ll ca the yowes tae the knowes lovely Molly

Good morning to you old man you are herding your flock
I want a young yowe lamb one of your own stock
I want a young yowe lamb and the best she maun be
We’ll ca the yowes tae the knowes lovely Molly

Go down to yon meadow choose out your own lamb
And be sure you are welcome as ony young man
You are heartily welcome and the best she maun be
We’ll ca the yowes tae the knowes lovely Molly

He’s gone down to the meadow taen Moll by the hand
And soon by the old man this couple did stand
Saying this is the yowe lamb I purchased from thee
We’ll ca the yowes tae the knowes lovely Molly

Was there ever an old man so bewitched as I am
To sell my ain daughter instead o a lamb
But since I hae said it een sae let it be
We’ll ca the yowes tae the knowes lovely Molly
