Gude Ale Keeps the Heart Aboon (Poem by Robert Burns)

Classic Poem

Gude Ale Keeps the Heart Aboon
By Robert Burns

(1)

O gude ale comes, and gude ale goes,
Gude ale gars me sell my hose,
Sell my hose, and pawn my shoon,
Gude ale keeps my heart aboon.

(2)

I had sax owsen in a pleugh,
They drew a’ weel eneugh,
I sell’d them a’ just ane by ane;
Gude ale keeps my heart aboon.

(3)

Gude ale hands me bare and busy,
Gars me moop wi’ the servant hizzie,
Stand i’ the stool when I hae done,
Gude ale keeps my heart aboon.
    O gude ale comes, &c.


NOTE:
These verses are in the museum; the first two are old, the concluding one is by Burns.
