168 LORD SALTON AND AUCHANACHIE.
" Salton will gar you wear silk gowns fringM to
thy knee, But ye'll never wear that wi' your love Auchana-
chie."                                                                           u
" Wi' Auchanachie Gordon I would beg my bread, Before that wi' Salton I'd wear gowd on my head;
" Wear gowd on my head, or gowns fring'd to the
knee, And I'll die if I getna my love Auchanachie; 0 Saltan's valley lies low by the sea,                          is
He's bowed on the back, and thrawin on the knee."
" O Saltan's a valley lies low by the sea; Though he's bowed on the back, and thrawin on
the knee, Though he's bowed on the back, and thrawin on
the knee, The bonny rigs of Salton they're nae thrawin tee."
" O you that are my parents to church may me bring,                                                                                   25
But unto young Salton I'll never bear a son; For son, or for daughter, I'll ne'er bow my knee, And I'll die if I getna my love Auchanachie."
When Jeanie was married, from church was

been,                                                                            «>
