History is reflected in the words of many songs of many folk groups

   To A Haggis - Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face, - Great chieftain o' the Puddin-race! - Aboon them a' ye tak your place, - Painch, tripe, or thairm: - Weel are ye wordy of a grace - As lang's my arm - - 2. The groaning trencher there ye fill, - Your hurdies like a distant hill, - Your pin wad help to mend a mill - In time o' need, - While thro' your pores the dews distil - Like amber bead. - - - 3. His knife see Rustic-labour dight, - An' cut you up wi' ready slight, - Trenching your gushing entrails bright - Like onie ditch; - And then, O what a glorious sight, - Warm-reekin, rich! - - - 4. Then, horn for horn they stretch an' strive, - Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive, - Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve - Are bent like drums; - Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive, - Bethankit hums.


Folk Groups - Quotations.      

Quotations about folk groups and their instruments crop up throughout literature. Here are some quotations:-

Let me play to you tunes without measureor end, ~ Tunes that are born to die without a herald, ~ As a flight of storks rises from a marsh, ~circles, And alights on the spot from which it rose. ~Hugh MacDiarmid
