Sailing up the clyde T&M: Will Fyffe Now I've been away for a long long time across the rolling sea, my faither was a soldier lad so a sailor I would be. Now I've had something taken while away across the foam, but the greatest fear and all the luck is when you're sailing home.... Ay when you're sailing up the Clyde, sailing up the Clyde, back to Bonnie Scotland where the auld folk bide. There's a lump comes in your throat and a tear ye cannie hide, and ye're rolling back tae Scotland an yir ain fireside. Now my pals came down to see me off on the day I sailed away, they brought a flask of whisky that was made in USA. I said goodbye good luck old pals, I'll see you in September, I took one drink and then fell down and the next thing I remember ... I was sailing up the Clyde, sailing up the Clyde, back tae Bonnie Scotland where the auld fowk bide. There's a lump comes in your throat and a tear ye cannie hide, when ye're rolling back tae Scotland and yir ain fireside. Spoken: I'm telling you. You know, the best thing about sailing away is coming back again. I'm a sailor whit a ??? so I know. ???? I'm back agin. No, the old women does'nt know. My dear mother is the bast pal in the whole lot. I can se her waiting for me in the ??? I was sailing up the Clyde, sailing up the Clyde, back tae Bonnie Scotland where the auld fowk bide. There's a lump comes in your throat and a tear ye cannie hide, when ye're rolling back tae Scotland and yir ain fireside.
