Often I’ve laughed unto myself when trudgin’ on the road
My toerags round my blistered feet, my face as brown as a toad
Wi’ lumps o’ cake an’ tattie scones, wi’ whangs o’ braxie ham
Not giving a thought to where I’ve been an’ less to where I’m going

I’ve done my share o’ humpin’ wi’ the dockers on the Clyde
I’ve helped Buckie trawlers haul their herrin’s over the side
I helped to build yon mighty bridge that spans the busy Forth
And with many an Angus farmer, I ploughed the bony earth

I’m happy in the summertime beneath the bright blue sky
No thinking in the morning where at night I’m going to lie
In barn or byre or anywhere dossin’ out among the hay
And if the weather treats me right I’m happy every day
