YOUNG REDIN.
" From the recitation of Miss E. Beattie, of Edin­burgh, a native of Mearnsshire, who sings it to a plaintive, though somewhat monotonous air of one measure."—Kbtloch, Ancient Scottish Ballads, p. 1.
Young Redin's til the huntin gane,
"WT therty lords and three ; And he has til his true-love gane,
As fast as he could hie.
" Ye 're welcome here, my young Redin, 5
For coal and candle licht; And sae are ye, my young Redin,
To bide wi' me the nicht"
" I thank ye for your licht, ladie,
Sae do I for your coal; But there's thrice as fair a ladie as thee
Meets me at Brandie's well."
