Songs by Robert Burns

Bob Hay & the Jolly Beggars song book

O Willie brew'd a peck o' maut

   G               C
O Willie brew'd a peck o' maut,
     G                    D
And Rob and Allen cam to see;
       G                    C
Three blyther hearts, that lee-lang night,
    G      D       G   D   G
Ye wadna found in Christendie.
                D      G          C        G
Chorus:	We are na fou', we're nae that fou',
                 C       G             D         
            But just a drappie in our e'e;
                 G        C                 G
            The cock may craw, the day may daw
                 G         D         G  D   G
            And aye we'll taste the barley bree. 

2. Here are we met, three merry boys,
Three merry boys I trow are we;
And mony a night we've merry been,
And mony mae we hope to be!

3. It is the moon, I ken her horn,
That's blinkin' in the lift sae hie;
She shines sae bright to wyle us hame,
But, by my sooth, she'll wait a wee!

4. Wha first shall rise to gang awa',
A cuckold, coward loun is he!
Wha first beside his chair shall fa',
He is the King amang us three.
