Molly McPhee ©

Jamie Wilson
Swansea, Wales
2004

my name is Jack McGlone
I was half a mile from home
from my wee butt 'n' ben in Inverurie
when I spied a maiden fair
tartan ribbons in her hair
she came dancin thru the mist just like a fairy,

I asked the lass her name,
and if she was ga'n hame
would she mind for a while if I could tarry
as she walked by my side
heard the skirlin' o' the pipes
then I knew this love for her I'll always carry,

Chorus:
I said Molly McPhee
come away an bide wi' me
reach out an soothe a hert that's achin
Molly McPhee
if I get doon on bended knee
if I gie yi my hawn wi'd ye no take it.

she threw back her hair
gave aff a vixen stare
said I'm betrothed tae a shepherd in the valley
but my hert jumped oot my chest
she said my words are a' in jest
ther is nae shepherd waitin in the valley

Chorus:

nine years hiv passed us bye
she's still the apple o' mi eye
five laddies an a lass my lady bore me
here by her side I lay
we laugh back oan that day
when I asked fir her hand
she did'nae know me, when I said

Chorus:

"so i gied her my hawn an she did take it"
