184 "Willie's drowned in gamert.
Then they rode on, and further on, Till they came to the kirk o' Gamery;
And every one on high horse sat, But Willie's horse rade toomly.
When they were settled at that place, «
The people fell a mourning; And a council held amo' them a',
But sair, sair wept Kinmundy.
Then out it speaks the bride hersell,
Says, " What means a' this mourning ? " s>
Where is the man amo' them a', That shou'd gie me fair wedding ? "
Then out it speaks his brother John, ' Says, " Meg, I'll tell you plainly ;
The stream was strong, the clerk rade wrong, And Willie's drown'd in Gamery." ss
She put her hand up to her head, Where were the ribbons many;
She rave them a', let them down fa,'
And straightway ran to Gamery. eo
She sought it up, she sought it down,
Till she was wet and weary ; And in the middle part o' it,
There she got her deary.
