The Deidly Wars Are Past and Gane Lyrics

The Deidly Wars Are Past and Gane by Burns Robert  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

The Deidly Wars Are Past and Gane THE DEIDLY WARS ARE PAST AND GANE
For the deidly wars are passed and gane
and gentle peace returning
Left mony's the sweet babe faitherless
and mony's the widow mourning
I left the lines and the tented field
whaur I'm no longer a lodger
A humble knapsack, it's a' my wealth
I'm a poor but honest sodger
A lea-licht hert was in my brest
my hands unstained wi' plunder
It's all for Scotia hame again
I cheery on did wonder
I thocht upon the banks of Coille
I thocht upon my Nancy
I thocht upon her bewitching smile
that stole my youthful fancy
Norman Kennedy gor this from Jeannie Robertson
who thought it was Robert Burns
