Plooman Laddies (Traditional) Barbara Dickson, Hamish, Derek, Ian line-up.
Doon yonder den there’s a plooboy lad,
And some simmer’s day he’ll be a' my ain
Sing laddie aye, and sing laddie o,
The plooman laddies are a' the go
I love his teeth and I love his skin
I love the very cairt he hurls in
Doon yonder den I micht hae gotten a miller
But the smell o' dust would hae got me ill
Doon yonder den I could hae gotten a merchant
But a' his gear wasnae worth a groat
I see him comin frae yonder toon
Wi a' his ribbons hingin roon' an roon'
And noo she's gotten her plooman lad
As bare as ever he's left the ploo'
