Summary

This waulking song incites the women to waulk the cloth with vigour.

Item Notes

Seven lines sung. It has been suggested that in its original form, this song could have been linked with rowing. The lines sung here say: "Four of us are here, one more than three. If you continue on your journey, visit my beloved Dunvegan."
