THE TWA SISTERS.
Verbatim (with one interpolated stanza) from the recitation of Mrs. Brown. Jamieson's Popular Bal­lads, i. 50.
There waa twa sisters liv'd in a bower,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! There came a knight to be their wooer,
By the bonny miU-dams o' Binnorie.
He courted the eldest wi' glove and ring, a
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ! But he loved the youngest aboon a' thing,
By the bonny mill-dams o' Binnorie.
He courted the eldest wi' broach and knife, Binnorie, 0 Binnorie !                                   10
But he loved the youngest as his life, By the bonny miU-dams o' Binnorie.
