Rattlin' Roarin' Willie
written in 1788
O Rattlin, roarin Willie, O he held to the fair, An' for to sell his fiddle And buy some other ware; But parting wi' his fiddle, The saut tear blin't his e'e; And Rattlin, roaring Willie, Ye're welcome hame to me! O Willie, come sell your fiddle, O, Sell your fiddle sae fine; O Willie, come sell your fiddle, And buy a pint o' wine; If I should sell my fiddle, The warl' would think I was mad; For mony a rantin day My fiddle and I hae had. As I cam by Crochallan, I cannilie keekit ben; Rattlin, roarin Willie Was sitting at yon boord-en', Sitting at yon boord-en', And amang gude companie; Rattlin, roarin Willie, Ye're welcome hame to me!
