THE CKUEL BROTHER.
259
" And I have asked your sister Ann,"
Fine flowers i' the valley;                                so
" But I forgot your brother John ; " JPi'' the red, green, and the yellow.
Now when the wedding-day was come,
Fine flowers the valley, The knight would take his bonny bride home, as
Wi' the red, green, and the yellow.
And mony a lord, and mony a knight,
Fine flowers i" the valley, Cam to behold that lady bright,
WV the red, green, and the yellow.                 *>
There was nae man that did her see,
Fine flowers i' the valley, But wished himsell bridegroom to be,
Wi' the red, green, and the yellow.
Her father led her down the stair,                      45
Fine flowers the valley, And her sisters twain they kissed her there, Wi' the red, green, and the yellow.
Her mother led her through the close,
Fine flowers the valley ;                                 so
Her brother John set her on her horse, W the red, green, and the yellow.
