Oh, me name is Jock Stewart
I’m a canny gang man
And a rovin’ young fellow I’ve been

Chorus:
So be easy and free
When you’re drinkin’ with me
I’m a man you don’t meet every day

I’m a piper by trade
I’m a ramblin’ young blade
And ’tis many the tune I can play
So be…..

I’ve got acres of land
I have men at command
And I’ve always a shillin’ to spare
So be…..

With my dog and my gun
I go out for to shoot
All along the green banks o’ the Spey
So be…..

So come fill up your glasses
With brandy and wine
And whatever the cost, I will pay
So be easy and free
When you’re drinkin’ with me
I’m a man you don’t meet every day
I’m a man you don’t meet every day
