O Are You Sleeping, Maggie?

O Are You Sleeping, Maggie?

This set is part of the following collections:
Music

A song written by the Ettrick Shepherd James Hogg (1774-1810).

Dark and rainy is the night,
There’s no a star in a' the carry;
Lightnings gleam athwart the lift,
And the cauld winds drive wi' winter’s fury.

O, are ye sleepin', Maggie?
O, are ye sleepin', Maggie?
Let me in, for loud the linn
Is roarin' o'er the warlock craigie!



This set and other tunes played at Scottish Sessions can be found in The Glasgow Slow Session Volume 2, available from my Online Store.
