Old Blind Dogs - Braw Sailin' lyrics

Well there came a letter yesterday, our ship it will sail at morn
'Alas! cried my bonny lass, that ever I were born.

And it's Braw sailing on the sea, when wind and weather's fair,
But it's better to be in my love's arms, I wish that I were there.

Sp when he went to her farm house, at twelve o'clock at noon,
The lassie being proud hearted, she would not let him in.

And it's Braw sailing on the sea, when wind and weather's fair,
But it's better to be in my love's arms, I wish that I were there.

So she's ta'en the ring from her pocket, it cost her shillings nine,
Sayin' 'Take this ring my bonnie lad, for I have changed my mind.'

So he's taken the ring from hs pocket, it cost him guineas three,
Sayin 'Take this ring my bonnie lass, and aye think well of me.'

And it's Braw sailing on the sea, when wind and weather's fair,
But it's better to be in my love's arms, I wish that I were there.

And it's braw drinking Glasgow beer, it's better drinking wine
But it's better to be in my love's arms, where I have been many's the time.

And it's Braw sailing on the sea, when wind and weather's fair,
But it's better to be in my love's arms, I wish that I were there.

And it's Braw sailing on the sea, when wind and weather's fair,
But it's better to be in my love's arms, I wish that I were there.

And it's Braw sailing on the sea, when wind and weather's fair,
But it's better to be in my love's arms, I wish that I were there.
