Lyrics - Rattlin Roarin Willie

O, rattlin' roarin' Willie, o, he held to the fair
An' for to sell his fiddle an' buy some other ware
But parting wi' his fiddle, the saut tear blin't his e'e
And rattlin' roarin' Willie, ye're welcome hame to me

O, Willie, come sell your fiddle, o sell your fiddle sae fine
O, Willie, come sell your fiddle, and buy a pint o' wine
If I should sell my fiddle, the warl' would think I was mad
For many a rantin' day, my fiddle and I hae had

As I cam' by Crochallan, I cannily keekit ben
Rattlin' roarin' Willie was sitting at yon boord-en
Sitting at yon boord-en, and amang guid companie
Rattlin' roarin' Willie, ye're welcome hame to me
