Gude Ale Keeps The Heart Aboon

      Chorus-O gude ale comes and gude ale goes;      Gude ale gars me sell my hose,      Sell my hose, and pawn my shoon-      Gude ale keeps my heart aboon!       I had sax owsen in a pleugh,      And they drew a' weel eneugh:      I sell'd them a' just ane by ane-      Gude ale keeps the heart aboon!      O gude ale comes, &c.       Gude ale hauds me bare and busy,      Gars me moop wi' the servant hizzie,      Stand i' the stool when I hae done-      Gude ale keeps the heart aboon!      O gude ale comes, &c.
