Johnny Cope Lyrics

Hey Johnny Cope are ye walking yet or are your drums a
beating yet
If ye were walking I would wait tae gang tae the coals
in the morning

Cope sent a challenge from Dunbar saying Charlie meet
me an' ye daur
An' I'll learn ye the art o' war if ye'll meet me in
the morning

When Charlie looked his letter upon he drew his sword
the scabbard from
Come follow me my merry men and we'll meet Johnny Cope
in the morning

Now Johnny be as good as your word come let us try
baithe fire and sword
And dinna flee like a frichted bird that's chased frae
its nest i' the morning

When Johnny Cope he heard o' this He thocht it wadna ba
a miss
Tae hae a horse in readiness Tae flee awa in the
morning
Hey Johnny Cope are ye walking yet or are your drums a
beating yet
If ye were walking I would wait tae gang tae the coals
in the morning

Fye now Johnny get up a' rin The Highland bagpipes mak'
a din
Its better tae Sleep in a hale skin for it will be a
bloody morning

When Johnny Cope tae Dunbar cam' the spiered at him
Where's a your men
The de'il confound me gin I ken for I left them a' in
the morning

In faith qou Johnny I got sic flags Wi' their claymores
an' philabegs
Gin I face them again de'il brak my legs so I wish you
a' good morning
Hey Johnny Cope are ye walking yet or are your drums a
beating yet
If ye were walking I would wait tae gang tae the coals
in the morning
