YOUNG REDIN.
0  there cam seekin young Redin, Monie a lord and knicht;
And there cam seekin young Redin, Monie a ladie bricht.
And they hae til his true-love gane,                65
Thinking he was wi' her ;
* ******
" I hae na seen him, young Redin,
Sin yesterday at noon ;                                     70
He turn'd his stately steed about, And hied him through the toun.
" But ye'll seek Clyde's Vater up and doun, Ye'll seek it out and in—
1 hae na seen him, young Redin,                     rs
Sin yesterday at noon."
Then up bespak young Redin's mither, And a dowie woman was scho ;—
" There's na a place in a Clyde's water, But my son wad gae through."                    so
They've sought Clyde's water up and doun,
They've sought it out and in, And the deepest place o' Clyde's water
They fund young Redin in.
