132             TONE-POETRY OF ROBERT BURNS
No. 145. As down the bum they took their way.
Tune : Down the burn, Davie Orpheus Caledonius, 1725, No. 50.
As down the burn they took their way,
And thro' the flowery dale; His cheek to hers he aft did lay,
And love was ay the tale, With :'Mary, when shall we return,
Sic pleasure to renew?' Quoth Mary :' Love, I like the burn,
And ay shall follow you.'
No. 146. O, were my love yon lilac fair.
Tune : Gin my love were yon red rose. Scots Musical Museum, 1803, No. 562.
