harry gordon – the rodin tree lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
auld airchie he sat by the side o the brook
wi a rod in his hand, an a worm on the hook
neath the boughs o a rodden tree shady

[verse 2]
the sunshine cam lazily tricklin through
aroon him the flouers, sae dainty o hue
they were yella, an purple, an violet, an blue
wi a hai timmer ha timmer heidi

[verse 3]
auld airchie caucht naething, a’m sorry tae say
tho he sat there and fished through the hale o the day
neath the boughs o a rodden tree shady

[verse 4]
for intae the burnie, tho he niver knew
cam the waste fae the gasworks, sae dainty o hue
it wis yella, an purple, an violet, an blue
wi a hai timmer ha timmer heidi

[verse 5]
so anither attempt he determined to mak
but doun on a wasp’s nest he sat bi mistak
neath the boughs o a rodden tree shady
[verse 6]
and he got several bites o the wrang kind, it’s true
and the language that airchie let oot when he knew
it wis yella, an purple, an violet, an blue
wi a hai timmer ha timmer heidi
