THE MAID GAED TO THE MILL (from Ewan Mac­Coll)

The maid gaed to the mill by nicht
Hey, hey, sae wan­ton!
The maid gaed to the mill by nicht
Hey, sae wan­ton she
She swore by a’ the stars sae bricht
That she should hae her corn ground
She should hae her corn ground
Mill and mul­ture free

Then oot and cam’ the miller’s man
Hey, hey, sae wan­ton!
Oot and cam’ the miller’s man
Hey, sae wan­ton he!
He swore he’d do the best he can
For to get her corn ground
For to get her corn ground
Mill and mul­ture free

He put his hand about her neck
Hey, hey, sae wan­ton!
He put his hand about her neck
Hey, sae wan­ton he!
He flung her doon upon a sack
And there she got her corn ground
There she got her corn ground
Mill and mul­ture free

When oth­er maids gaed oot to play
Hey, hey, sae wan­ton!
When oth­er maids gaed oot to play
Hey, sae wan­ton­ly!
She sighed and sobbed and would­na stay
Because she’d got her corn ground
Because she’d got her corn ground
Mill and mul­ture free

When forty weeks were past and gane
Hey, hey, sae wan­ton!
When forty weeks were past and gane
Hey, sae wan­ton­ly!
This lassie had a braw lad bairn
For get­tin’ o’ her corn ground
Get­tin’ o’ her corn ground
Mill and mul­ture free

Her mither bid her cast it oot
Hey, hey, sae wan­ton!
Her mither bid her cast it oot
Hey, sae wan­ton­ly!
It was the miller’s dusty clout
For get­ting’ o’ her corn ground
Get­tin’ o’ her corn ground
Mill and mul­ture free

Her faither bade her keep it in
Hey, hey, sae wan­ton!
Her faither bade her keep it in
Hey, sae wan­ton­ly!
It was the chief o’ a’ her kin
Because she’d got her corn ground
Because she’d got her corn ground
Mill and mul­ture free

    I guess this would be Dougal’s theme song, if he had his own show!
    Boys will be boys!

    That is very inter­est­ing! Thank you!
