  4. Lewis Deering says:

    This is my faves lute carr song of all time

  5. fireflyxl5 says:

    @MrPenfold84 I think it may have been in Ronnie Browne’s house in the
    borders somewhere.

  6. WhiteCavendish says:

    There is a Canadian version of this which was sung about the Blue Puttees,
    the famous regiment of Newfoundlanders that was raised for WWI. A very
    poigniant song about the courage and the pathos of that great generation
    and of the terrible toll their slaughter took on the people of the rock.

  7. Jim McManus says:

    ah this is pure dead brilliant!

  8. LindsayCurran says:

    “Enlist bonny laddie, and come along with me… It’s over the mountain &
    over the bay Through Gibraltar to France & to Spain!…” – Aye, I’d have
    gone in a heartbeat! With a kilt upon me knee! – Thanks, firefly – these
    live clips are marvelous!

  9. Alberto Cecconello says:

    Ronnie’s voice can make any tune sound epic. This is definitely my favorite
    from The Corries. R.I.P. Roy.

  10. Midnight Blue says:

    The two recruiting sergeants= Roy Williamson and Ronnie Browne.

  11. MrCHUFTY says:

    going to King’s Buildings Campus.

  14. boabmax says:

  16. fireflyxl5 says:

    No problem! Look out for more of the corries guys, I’ve got 7 or 8 more
    clips to load from the same series.

    jist braw

  18. Oso Takano says:

    Wow…I did not realie this was a real…song. A (mumble-mumble) long time
    ago, I was in a platoon of Marines and we used to do road march, and sing
    cadences to keeo the time. Sgt MacDonald had this tune – but his words were
    like – “Enlist, young Marine, and come along with me/we’re off to sail the
    oceans, and all the seven seas, bright-eyed laddie, and come along with me”
    – with a bunch of lines about the Pacific, Viet Nam, Lebenon, etc.

  19. kiltsnhaggis says:

    One of my favs. A great Scottish song sung by the geatest Scottish duo
    ever. Scots wha hae…

  20. fireflyxl5 says:

    Yes this is one of my favorite Corries songs:)

  21. Arkybark says:

    I think it’s a BBC studio but I could be wrong. Someone should ask Ronnie’s
    son Gavin. He runs the Corries’ website and Facebook page and is good about
    answering questions like this.

  22. xXB88DxX says:

    o wow not I know that the song Recruiting Sergent (which is about the
    Newfoundland Soldiers) is obviously based on this song

  23. Susan Morse says:

    After some investigating (consulting the Corries website), I have learned
    that no music was ever recorded at Ronnie or Roy’s home but for personal
    use. And this came from both Ronnie and his son Gavin. Attn.: MrPenfold84

  24. BeanBean136 says:
