Auld Lang Syne

Performed by Marc Gunn | Download
From: The Bridge: Celtic and Folk Songs


words and music Robert Burns

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely you'll buy your pint cup!
And surely I'll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the braes,
and pulled the gowans fine;
But we've wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the burn,
from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roared
since auld lang syne.

And there's a hand my trusty fiere!
And give a hand o' thine!
And we'll take a right gude-willie-waught,
And we'll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.



Background:It's New Years Eve. I've wanted to record "Auld Lang Syne" for years now. It's just a beautiful song. As I was napping today, I finally came up with a solo arrangement for this classic song by Robert Burns, the national poet of Scotland.
