Music Of The
Loom
A simple brief
thought on Scottish
Independance.

Were the outdated
union not of some very
high value to England and
the English, why would
they fight so to try to
keep it?

There are only so many
slices to a pie, for one to
have more, another must
have less.

Lastly - to those Scottish
"Loyalists" - to whom are
you loyal?
Scots royalty died in the
1700's so it can be no
Scots crown - And
certainly not it appears to
those who came before,
that bled for Scotland
and her freedom !  
Pee nickle, po nickle, a' roon the toon it's heard
Pee nickle, po nickle, music o' the loom
Pee nickle, po nickle, a' roon the toon it's heard
Pee nickle, po nickle, music o' the loom

The weaver's mind is on his work, his hands they deftly fly
Peace and rest his body shirks until his task is by
And he hums tae the music of the loom
As the cloth takes shape it brightens up the room

A weaver ne'er will mak a king, he'll never be a laird
But the art that's in the Paisley shawl will live forever mair
Aye the weaver's workmanship is clear
And it's time for rest as daylight disappears

The Queen she sits in London toon, she's ordered up a
shawl
But Sadie Fogg the weaver's lass is queen above them all
And he weaves in the colour o' her hair
Then he blows the candle oot, comes weary up the stair

The clickin' clackin' noises stoppin', wheels grind tae a halt
An honest weaver tae the toon was worth his weight in
salt
Oh the days of weaving are now past
But the memory lingers on in colours made tae last
