Io8            TONE-POETRY OF ROBERT BURNS
No. 117. If thou should ask my love.
Tune : Jamie, come try me Caledonian Pocket Companion, c. 1745, ii. p. 34.
Chorus Jamie, come try me, Jamie, come try me; If thou would win my love, Jamie, come try me.
If thou should ask my love, Could I deny thee ?
If thou would win my love, Jamie, come try me.
If thou should kiss me, love, Wha could espy thee?
If thou wad be my love, Jamie, come try me.
No. 118. Hark the mavis' e'ening sang.
Tune : Ca' the yowes (see No. 114).
Chorus. Co1 the yowes to the knowes,
Co1 them where the heather grows, Cd them where the burnie rowes, My bonie dearie.
Hark, the mavis' e'ening sang Sounding Clouden's woods amang, Then a-faulding let us gang, My bonie dearie.
We'll gae down by Clouden side,
Thro' the hazels, spreading wide
O'er the waves that sweetly glide
To the moon sae clearly.
