Barnyards Of Delgaty
Traditional

As I got down to Turra market, Turra market for to fee
I fell in with a wealthy farmer, the barnyards of Delgaty

A linten addie toorin addie, linten addie toorin ae
Linten lowrin lowrin lowrin, the barnyards of Delgaty

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

A linten addie toorin addie, linten addie toorin ae
Linten lowrin lowrin lowrin, the barnyards of Delgaty

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

A linten addie toorin addie, linten addie toorin ae
Linten lowrin lowrin lowrin, the barnyards of Delgaty

Now, I can drink and no be drunken, I can fight and no be slain
I can court with another mans lass and still be welcome to me ain

A linten addie toorin addie, linten addie toorin ae
Linten lowrin lowrin lowrin, the barnyards of Delgaty

Ah, now my candle is burnt oot, my snotter's fairly on the wane
Fare ye well ye barnyards, you'll never see me here again

A linten addie toorin addie, linten addie toorin ae
Linten lowrin lowrin lowrin, the barnyards of Delgaty

Reg Pringle of Scotland kindly emailed some extra information about this song:
Hi Rod Just noticed the following on your site (nice one by the way): Barnyards Of Delgaty (lyrics) This has been indexed under Irish Songs but is actually an old Aberdeenshire (ie Scottish) song, the "Turra" is the first line being Turriff, home of the well-known "Turra Coo".
