Rattlin Roarin Willie

by Robert Burns
Lyric as sung by Dick Gaughan

Rattlin Roarin Willie, he held tae the fair
For tae sell his fiddle an buy some ither wares
Pairtin wi his fiddle the saut tear blint his ee
Rattlin Roarin Willie ye're walcom hame tae me

Willie come sell yer fiddle, come sell yer fiddle sae fine
Willie come sell yer fiddle an buy a pint o wine
Were A tae sell ma fiddle the warl wad think A wis mad
Mony's the rattlin time the fiddle an A hae had

As A cam by Crochallan, A cannily keekit ben
An Rattlin Roarin Willie wis sittin at yon board-en
Sittin at yon board-en amang guid companie
Rattlin Roarin Willie ye're walcom hame tae me
