Barnyards of Delgaty

lyrics

As I went down to Turra market,
Turra market for to fee
I fell in with a market farmer,
The barnyards of Delgaty

Linten adie toorin adie,
Linten adie toorin ee;
Linten lowrin, lowrin, lowrin,
The Barnyards o'Delgaty

He promised me the finest horse
That e'er I set my eyes upon
When I got to the barnyards,
There was nothing there but skin and bone

As I went down to church on Sunday,
Many's the bonnie lass I see
Sitting by her mothers side,
And winkin' over the pews at me

Now, I can drink and not get drunk,
And I can fight and not be slain
I can court with another man's lass
I'll be welcome to me ain

Now my candle is burnt out,
My snotter's fairly on the wane
Fare ye well ye barnyards,
You'll not see me here again
