" Your brethren will kemb your yellow hair
Wi' a new-made silver kemb; And the king o' Heaven will father your bairn,                                                     "
Till love Gregor come hame."
" 0 gin I had a bonny ship,
And men to sail wi' me, It's I wad gang to my true love,
Sin he winna come tome!"                       a>
Her father's gien her a bonny ship,
And sent her to the stran'; She's taen her young son in her arms,
And turn'd her back to the Ian'.
She hadna been o' the sea sailrn'                   as
About a month or more, Till landed has she her bonny ship
Near her true-love's door.
The nicht was dark, and the wind blew cald, And her love was fast asleep,                   «
And the bairn that was in her twa arms Fu' sair began to greet.
Lang stood she at her true love's door,
And lang tirl'd at the pin ; At length up gat his fause mother,                ss
Says, " Wha's that wad be in ?"
