Money

This ballad begins: ”Tis mony makes the mair to go is a saying old and true / And when you’ve go the ready cash, friends will stick like glue, / But when your purse is empty, those friends you thought sincere, / Will proudly turn upon their heels and quickly disapper.’ A note below the title states that this ballad was ‘Sung by Harry Russell, with great success’, and that ‘Copies of this popular song can always be had at the POET’S BOX, Overgaie, Dundee’ for more click here
