268            TONE-POETRY OF ROBERT BURNS
No. 284. Here's a health to them that's awa.
Tune : Here's a health to them that's awa ScotsMus.Mus., i796,No.4i2.
Here's a health to them that's awa,
Here's a health to them that's awa ! And wha winna wish guid luck to our cause, May never guid luck be their fa'!
It's guid to be merry and wise,
It's guid to be honest and true, It's guid to support Caledonia's cause
And bide by the buff and the blue.
Here's a health to them that's awa,
Here's a health to them that's awa! Here's a health to Charlie, the chief o' the clan,
Altho' that his band be but sma\
May Liberty meet wi' success I
May Prudence protect her frae evil! May tyrants and tyranny tine i' the mist,
And wander their way to the devil !
Here's a health to them that's awa,
Here's a health to them that's awa ! Here's a health to Tammie, the Norlan' laddie,
That lives at the lug o' the law !
Here's freedom to them that wad read,
Here's freedom to them that would write! There's nane ever fear'd that the truth should be heard
But they whom the truth would indite.
