THE BARNYARDS OF DELGATY
 

 

As I went in by Turra market
Turra market for to fee
I fell in with a wealthy farmer
At the barnyards of Delgaty

Chorus:
Lint-a-naddy, tour-a-naddy, lint-a-naddy, tour-a-nee
Lint-in-lowrin, lowrin, lowrin, the barnyards of Delgaty

He promised me the finest horse
That ever I set my eyes upon
But when I got to the barnyards
There was nothing there but skin and bone

Chorus

As I came in to church on Sunday
Many a bonnie lass I see
Sitting by her father's side
And winking o'er the pews at me

Chorus

I can drink and no' get drunk
And I can fight and no' be slain
I can court another man's lass
And still be welcome to my ain

Chorus

Now my candle is burned out
My snotter's fairly on the wane
Fare ye well ye barnyards
You'll never catch me here again

Chorus
