II. LOVE : GENERAL
147
Is this thy plighted, fond regard, Thus cruelly to part, my Katie?
Is this thy faithful swain's rewardó An aching broken heart, my Katie ?
Farewell 1 and ne'er such sorrows tear That fickle heart of thine, my Katie!
Thou may'st find those will love thee dear, But not a love like mine, my Katie !
No- 165. There was a bonie lass.-
Tune : A bonie lass.
Scots Musical Museum, 1803, No. 586.
There was a bonie lass, and a bonie, bonie lass,
And she lo'ed her bonie laddie dear, Till war's loud alarms tore her laddie frae her arms
Wi' monie a sigh and a tear. Over sea, over shore, where the cannons loudly roar,
He still was a stranger to fear, And nocht could him quail, or his bosom assail,
But the bonie lass he lo'ed sae dear. l 2
