Tae The Weaver's Gin Ye Go

This song is by Andy M. Stewart & Mánus Lunny and appears on the album At It Again (1990).

My heart was ance as blythe and free
As simmer days were lang
But a bonnie westlin weaver lad
Has gart me change my sang

Tae the weaver's gin ye go fair maid
Tae the weaver's gin ye go
I rede ye richt, gang ne'er at nicht
Tae the weaver's gin ye go

My mither sent me tae the toon
Tae warp a plaiden wab
But the weary weary warpin o't
Has gart me sigh and sab

A bonnie westlin weaver lad
Sat workin' at his loom
He took my heart as wi a net
In every knot and thrum

I sat beside my warpin-wheel
And ay I ca'd it roun'
But every shot and every knock
My heart it gae a stoun

The moon was sinkin in the west
Wi' visage pale and wan
As my bonnie westlin weaver lad
Convoy'd me thro' the glen

But what was said or what was done
Shame fa' me gin I tell
But Oh, I fear the kintra soon
Will ken as weel's mysel
