Robert Burns is Scotland’s poet of Hogmanay, New Year’s Eve. We’ve all heard, and probably sung, his ‘Auld Lang Syne’ over the years, but recently I came across this song which is full of hope, comfort and joy. Enjoy the song and Happy New Year! May it be full of happiness, friendship and peace and monie a canty day.
Will & Co.
John Anderson my jo.
John Anderson my jo, John, my dear When we were first acquent, acquainted Your locks were like the raven, Your bonny brow was brent; smooth But now your brow is beld, John, bald Your locks are like the snaw, but blessings on your frosty pow, head John Anderson, my jo!
John Anderson my jo, John, We clamb the hill thegither, together And monie a canty day, John, cheerful We've had wi' ane anither; Now we maun totter down, John, must And hand in hand we'll go, And sleep thegither at the foot, John Anderson, my jo!
