He is bowed in the back, He's thrawen in the knee;
And I'll die if I get not My brave Auchanachie."
" I am bowed in the back,                     
Lassie as ye see, But the bonny lands of Salton
Are no crooked tee."
And when she was married
She would not lie down,                     20
But they took out a knife,
And cuttit her gown ;
Likewise of her stays
The lacing in three, And now she lies dead                            as
For her Auchanachie.
Out comes her bower-woman,
Wringing her hands, Says, " Alas for the staying
So long on the sands !                         »
" Alas for the staying
So long on the flood! For Jeanie was married,
And now she is dead."
