It fell ance upon a day,

" If my baby be a son, Edinbro', Edinbro', If my baby be a son, Stirling for aye;
If my baby be a son,
I'll make him a lord o' high renown," So proper Saint Johnston stands fair upon Tay. 10

Pray'd that her pains might fa', So proper Saint Johnston stands fair upon Tay. u
