Roch the wind in the clear day’s dawin Blaws the cloods heelster-gowdie ow’r the bay, But there’s mair nor a roch wind blawin Through the great glen o’ the warld the day. It’s a thocht that will gar oor rottans – A’ they rogues that gang gallus, fresh and gay – Tak the road, and seek ither loanins For their ill ploys, tae sport and play. Nae mair will the bonnie callants Mairch tae war when oor braggarts crousely craw, Nor wee weans frae pit-heid and clachan Mourn the ships sailin’ doon the Broomielaw. So come all ye at hame wi’ Freedom, Never heed whit the hoodies croak for doom. In your hoose a’ the bairns o’ Adam Can find breid, barley-bree and painted room. When MacLean meets wi’s freens in Springburn A’ the roses and geans will turn tae bloom, And a black boy frae yont Nyanga Dings the fell gallows o’ the burghers doon.
Mouth Music - Hamish Henderson. Auld Reekies Roses - Eurydice Choir w/Godeanna McCulloch. My Son David - Jeannie Robertson. Sleeve Notes (Excerpts). Poet, songwriter, soldier, collector, academic - none of these pigeon -holes do justice to the late Hamish Henderson, one of the great cultural figures of 20th century Scotland. Most of the tracks were recorded specially for this album by artists who were personal friends of Hamish, or greatly admired his work. One very unusual track on the album was found amongst Hamish's personal things where it had lain for some years. In 1968 Hamish invited The Corrie Folk Trio (Ronnie Browne, Bill Smith and the late Roy Williamson) to the School of Scottish Studies to record his song Rivonia (Free Mandela). Martin Carthy, by chance, was visiting Roy Williamson and remembers the occasion.
His 1984 solo debut I Saw The Wild Geese Flee is regarded as a classic Scottish folk album. He has also featured on other recordings including Linn Records’ Complete Songs of Robert Burns and the Hamish Henderson tribute A’ the Bairns o’ Adam. Jim won the STMA Scots Singer of the Year award in 2005. He died in July 2009. Song lyrics, poems, melody lines and photographs.
This magnificent song was written by Hamish Henderson in 1960 for the peace marchers at the Holy Loch near Glasgow. The tune is the World War I pipe march, ‘The Bloody Fields of Flanders’. So come all ye at hame wi Freedom, Never heed whit the hoodies croak for doom In your hoose a' the bairns o Adam Can find breid, barley-bree and painted room. When MacLean meets wi’s freens in Springburn A' the roses and geans will turn tae bloom, And a black boy frae yont Nyanga Dings the fell gallows o the burghers doon. Henderson wrote this song for the marchers at Dunoon, hence the opening lines about the blustery Argyll weather.
