Aye Waukin', O!







Aye Wakin Oh

Summer is a pleasant time
Flowers of every color
The water is out the ____
And I long for my true lover

Aye wakin' oh
Wakin' I am weary
Sleep I can get none
For thinking on my dearie
Aye wakin' oh

When first she came to town
The called her Grace MacFarland
But now she's gone away
They call her all folks darlin'

CHORUS
When I sleep I dream
And when I wake, I'm weary
Sleep I can get none
For thinking on my dearie

CHORUS

Her father loves her well
Her mother loves her better
And I love the lass myself
Woe is me, I can not get her

CHORUS

Recorded by Knowe-O-Deil



Note: A different version appears in the Scottish Students
Songbook (1929 edition):
Aye Waukin' O!
O, I am wat, wat
O I am wat and weary;
Yet fain would I rise and rin,
If I thocht I would meet my dearie.

cho: Ay waukin', O

Waukin' aye and weary,

Sleep I can get nane

For thinkin' o' my dearie.

Aye waukin' O!

Simmer's a pleasant time
Flowers o' ev'ry colour
The water rins ower the heugh,
And I long for my true lover

cho:

When I sleep I dream
When I wauk I'm eerie,
Sleep I can get nane
For thinkin' o' my dearie.

cho:

Lanely nicht comes on
A' the lave are sleepin'
I think on my true love
And bleer my een wi' greetin'.
