Crooked Bawbee (The)
CROOKED BAWBEE, THE. Scottish, English; Air, Waltz. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. A 'bawbee' is a term for a halfpence or ha'penny, especially in Scotland. Although originally a Scottish song air (with alternating verses sung by a man and a woman), it has become part of the Northumbrian piping repertoire.
O whaur awa' got ye that auld crookit penny,
For ane o' bright gowd would ye niffer wi' me;
Right fu' are baith ends o' my green silken wallet,
And braw will yer hame be in bonnie Glen Shee.
