Craigie Knowes

Craigie Knowes in Soutar's day.

Craigie Knowes

Gin mornin daw
I'll hear the craw
On Craigie Knowes
Wauk up the sin:
Wauk up the sin
Wi' caw on caw
Whan day comes in
On Craigie Knowes:
On Craigie Knowes
A' round about
I'll hear the craw
Or day be düne:
Or day be düne
And sterns come out,
And houlets hoot
On Craigie Knowes.


gin - when; daw - dawns; wauk - wake; sin - sun; sterns - stars; houlets - owls.
