Tune to Corachree
This is my illustration of an old Norman Kennedy arrangement:
"Corachree", the familiar story of a carefree romance
leading to bitter consequences.
Twas on a simmer's evenin' I gaed out tae tak' th' air.
When comin' in tae Tarlantown I spied a lonely pair...
The youth was tall an' handsome and the maid was fair tae see,
And I kennt their destination was nae far fo' Corachree. knew
Halfway up th' avenue, they baith set down tae rest.
He put his airms aroond her, sayin' "my dear I love ye best,
"A maiden ye hae sittin' down, a maid ye're aye tae me,
"But a maiden ye'll ne'er walk again on the garse o' Corachree."
"Oh Sandy lad, ye'll ne'er deny this deed ye hae done.
"My apron strings ha' broken, Lord, me hair flees wi' the wind, flies
"My maidenheed has ta'en a frecht, it's fairly flown awa', maidenhead...fright
"And the session clerk'll get tae ken this deed ye done tae me." clerk in charge of recording births
"Cheer up me bonnie lassie, you need no' care a fig.
"There's mony the bonnie lassie that gaes daily on th' rig! lands in trouble
"There's mony a bonnie lassie, aye, and just as guid as ye, good
"But a maiden ye'll ne'er walk again on the garse o' Corachree." grass
He comes down in the evenin', as often as he can.
He comes down in the evenin' jest tae see his lonely Anne,
They talk their line o' auld lange syne where naebody can see,
But ye'll easy find out a' their beds aroond by Corachee. tell what they've done
