SWEET WILLIAM AND MAY MARGARET. Kinlooh's Ancient Scottish Ballads, p. 241.
As May Marg'ret sat in her bouerie,
In her bouer all alone, At the very parting o' midnicht,
She heard a mournfu' moan.
" 0 is it my father, 0 is it my mother, «
Or is it my brother John ? Or is it sweet William, my ain true love,
To Scotland new come home ? "
" It ia na your father, it is na your mother, It is na your brother John ;                       io
But it is sweet William, your ain true love, To Scotland new come home."
