THE LASS OF LOCHROYAN. 107
" 0 WHA will shoe my bonny foot ?
And wha will glove my hand ? And wha will lace my middle jimp
Wi' a lang, lang linen band ?
" 0 wha will kame my yellow hair, s
With a new-made silver kame ?
And wha will father my young son, Till Lord Gregory come hame ? "—
" Thy father will shoe thy bonny foot,
Thy mother will glove thy hand, M
Thy sister will lace thy middle jimp, Till Lord Gregory come to land.
" Thy brother will kame thy yellow hair
With a new-made silver kame, And God will be thy bairn's father is
Till Lord Gregory come hame."—
" But I will get a bonny boat,
And I will sail the sea; And I will gang to Lord Gregory,
Since he canna come hame to me." 20
Syne she's gar'd build a bonny boat,
To sail the salt, salt sea; The sails were o' the light green silk,
The tows 0' taffety.
