SWEET WILLIE AND FAIR MAISRY. See p. 79. From Buchan's Ballads of the North of Scotland, i. 97.
" Hey love Willie, and how love Willie,
And Willie my love shall be ; They're thinking to sinder our lang love, Willie;
It's mair than man can dee.
" Ye'U mount me quickly on a steed, 6
A milk-white steed or gray; And carry me on to gude greenwood
Before that it be day."
He mounted her upon a steed,
He chose a steed o' gray ; «>
He had her on to gude greenwood
Before that it was day.
" 0 will ye gang to the cards, Meggie ?
Or will ye gang wi' me ? Or will ye ha'e a bower woman, is
To stay ere it be day ? "
