The river Cart runs through Paisley, Scotland an important weaving town in Robert Burns lifetime.
Originally set to the old song tune 'The Weaver's March' and in 1997 to a composition by James MacMillan (born 1959) a Scottish composer of contemporary classical music.
My daddie sign'd my tocher-band,
To gie the lad that has the land,
But to my heart I'll add my hand,
And give it to the Weaver.
While birds rejoice in leafy bowers,
While bees delight in opening flowers,
While corn grows green in summer showers,
I love my gallant Weaver.
