No. 221. On peace an' rest my mind was dent.
Tune : My wife she dang me Scots Musical Museum, 1803, No. 532.
Chorus. O, ay my ivife she dang me,
An1 aft my wife she bang'd me I If ye gie a woman a1 her will,
Gude faith I she'll soon o'ergang ye.
On peace an' rest my mind was bent,
And, fool I was ! I married ; But never honest man's intent
Sae cursedly miscarried.
Some sairie comfort at the last, When a' thir days are done, man ;
My l pains o' hell1 on earth is past, I'm sure o' bliss aboon, man.
