VII. PATRIOTIC AND POLITICAL              243
O, would, or I had seen the day
That treason thus could sell us, My auld grey head bad lien in clay
Wf Bruce and loyal Wallace ! But pith and power, till my last hour
I'll mak this declaration :— 1 We're bought and sold for English gold'—
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation !
No. 265. The Thames flows proudly to the sea.
Tune : Robie donna gorach Scots Musical Museum, 1790, No. 257.
The Thames flows proudly to the sea, Where royal cities stately stand ;
But sweeter flows the Nith to me,
Where Cummins ance had high command.
When shall I see that honour'd land, That winding stream I love so dear!
Must wayward Fortune's adverse hand For ever—ever keep me here?
How lovely, Nith, thy fruitful vales,
Where bounding hawthorns gaily bloom,
And sweetly spread thy sloping dales, Where lambkins wanton thro' the broom!
Tho' wandering now must be my doom Far from thy bonie banks and braes,
May there my latest hours consume Amang the friends of early days! r 2
