​Goodnight And Joy

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Singing Land (1985).

The year's wearin' tae the wane
And day is fadin' west awa
Out raves the torrent and the rain
And dark the cloud comes doon the shaw
Let the tempest tout and blaw
Upon his loudest winter horn
Goodnight and joy be with you all
We'll maybe meet again the morn

We have wandered far and wide
O'er Scotland's hills o'er firth and fell
Mony a simple flower we've culled
And trimmed them wi' the heather bell
We've ranged the dingle and the dell
The hamlet and the baron's ha'
And let us take a kind farewell
Goodnight and joy be with you all

Though I was wayward you were kind
And sorrowed when I went astray
For o my strains were often wild
As winds upon a winter day
The far I led you from the way
Forgie a minstrel anince for a'
A tear fas wi' his parting lay
Goodnight and joy be with you a'
