Songs > Twa Corbies
Dm C Dm As I was walking all alane A7 Dm I heard twa corbies making a mane F Dm F C And the tane unto the other did say-o Dm C Dm 'Oh, where shall we gang and dine to-day-o C Dm Where shall we gang and dine to-day?' 'In behind yon auld fail dyke I wot there lies a new slain knight And nobody kens that he lies there-o But his hawk, and his hound, and his lady fair-o G His hawk, and his hound, and his lady fair. 'His hound is to the hunting gane His hawk to fetch the wild-fowl hame His lady ta'en another mate-o So we may make our dinner sweet-o We may make our dinner sweet 'You'll sit on his white breast-bane And I'll peck out his bonny blue een And with a lock of his golden hair-o We'll thick our nest when it gets bare-o G We'll thick our nest when it gets bare.' 'Many's a one for him makes mane But none shall ken where he has gane Through his dry bones, when they are bare-o The wind shall blow for evernmair-o Wind shall blow for evermair'
