Broadside ballad entitled 'The Carse o' Gowrie' Dairy'
NEW COMIC SONG
CARSE 0' GOWRIE
This Popular Song can always be had at the Poet's Box,
The sky wis blue, and the wind blew high;
And the sun wis shining fairly,
And cam doon tae the Carse O' Gowrie Dairy.
By the Duke in style so fairly;
And cam doon tae the Carse O' Gowrie Dairy
The Duke O' Argyle brocht the Lass O' Ballochmyle,
Doon tae the Carse O' Gowrie Dairy;
For a pic-nic in the bonnie Den O' Airlie.
Noo my mate says tae me; these are mashers dont you
That are dressed in style so fairly,
And shook hands wi' the Duke into the dairy.
For the Duke talked tae me man fairly,
Noo says I tae the Duke wid ye tak a
drink o' dough,
It wid quench your thirst man fairly,
taste your cheese,
got a scone and butter;
he took me by the hand;
