Auld Lang Syne

This song is the first in a section entitled “Special Songs for Home and Social Gatherings”. It is one of several versions, from what I found when I was trying to clear up the spelling of a partially-obscured word.

Verse 1:
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never bro’t to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days o’auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days o’auld lang syne.

Verse 2:
We twa ha’e run about the braes,
And pul’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days o’auld lang syne.

Verse 3:
We twa ha’e paidlet in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid ha’e roar’d,
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days o’auld lang syne.

Robert Burns/Scotch
