■WILLIAM GTJISEMAN.
" 0 up bespak the skipper-boy,
I wat he spak too high; ' There's sinful men amongst us,               «
The seas will not obey ;' 0 up bespak the skipper-boy,
I wat he spak too high, And it's for mine offence I must die.
" 0 we cuist cavels us amang,                    so
The cavel fell on me ; O we cuist cavels us amang,
The cavel fell on me ; 0 we cuist cavels us amang,
The cavel fell on me,                              «
And it's for mine offence I must die.
" I had a loving mother
Who of me took gret care; She wad hae gien the gold sae red,
To have bought me from that snare; « But the gold could not be granted.
The gallows pays a share, And it's for mine offence I must die."
