To Friends (Hugh Scott)

Rest yourself down by the fire,
Make yourself at home;
Tell me truly how you've been,
How are things at home?

Will you have yourself a beer?
Won't you have some stew?
It's good to have your company,
It's good to talk with you.

So, let's sit back for a while,
And let the fire warm the home;
Let's sit back for a while,
You're welcome in my home.

I understand your daughter's five this year,
It seems she's just been born;
And you, so proud to see her grow,
A joy at every morn.

So, let's sit back for a while,
And let the fire warm the home;
Let's sit back for a while,
You're welcome in my home.

You say the time has come to go,
That saddens me this day;
But don't be a stranger to this home,
Make sure you come again this way.

So, here's to you my long dear friend,
And here's to all your kin;
Good health to you and always know,
I wait your stay again.

So, let's sit back for a while,
And let the fire warm the home;
Let's sit back for a while,
You're welcome in my home.
