Artist's Notes

Another traditional song towards a proposed album for Steeped In Tradition, a collective with myself and Kris Pride.

 

"A Red, Red Roseis a 1794 song in Scots by Robert Burns based on traditional sources.

Burns worked for the final seven years of his life on projects to preserve traditional Scottish songs for the future. In all, Burns had a hand in preserving over 300 songs for posterity.

Burns referred to this as a "simple old Scots song which I had picked up in the country."


Lyrics

A Red, Red Rose (Robert Burns, 1794)

 

O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That?s newly sprung in june;
O my Luve's like the melodie
That?s sweetly play'd in tune:

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a? the seas gang dry:

Till a? the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi? the sun:
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o? life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve
And fare thee weel, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho? it were ten thousand mile.
