No. 149. Young Jamie, pride of a the plain.
Tune : The carlin o' the glen Scots Musical Museum, 1796, No., 420.
Young Jamie, pride of a1 the plain, Sae gallant and sae gay a swain, Thro' a' our lassies he did rove, And reign'd resistless king of love. But now, wi' sighs and starting tears, He strays amang the woods and breers ; Or in the glens and rocky caves, His sad complaining dowie raves :
11, wha sae late did range and rove, And chang'd with every moon my love ; I little thought the time was near Repentance I should buy sae dear : The slighted maids my torments see, And laugh at a' the pangs I dree ; While she, my cruel, scornfu' fair, Forbids me e'er to see her mair!'
