Andrew Poleson                                                               SA 1971.213.4

A scots song of which  the source  has not yet been found.  Andrew played it first on his violin and then sang it, for his played version see below.  It makes a good tune to waltz to.  Roud Index no. 25920.

Yea ower the burn, yea doon the brae
Ye busk my  bust…?……             to mak it ready,
For I mean there to wed the day
The bonnie lad that wears the plaidie

Twine weel the bonnet weel
Twist weel the plaidie:
For oh I love the laddie weel 
That wears the tartan plaidie.
