BONDSEY AND MAISRY. See p. 298. From Buchan'3 Ballads of the North of Scotland, ii. 265.
" O come along wi' me, brother,
Now come along wi' me; And we'll gae seek our sister Maisry,
Into the water o' Dee."
The eldest brother he stepped in, s
He stepped to the knee; Then out he jump'd upo' the bank,
Says, " This water's nae for me."
The second brother he stepped in,
He stepped to the quit; w
Then out he jump'd upo' the bank, Says, " This water's wond'rous deep."
When the third brother stepped in,
He stepped to the chin; Out he got, and forward wade, w
For fear o' drowning him.
