Buchan's Ballads of the North of Scotland, i. 169. Annexed is a fragment published by Jamieson, under the title of Bonny Bee-Ho'm.
In Lauderdale I chanc'd to walk,
And heard a lady's moan, Lamenting for her dearest dear,
And aye she cried, ohon!
" Sure never a maid that e'er drew breath 5
Had harder fate than me ; I'd never a lad but one on earth,
They forc'd him to the sea.
" The ale shall ne'er be brewin o' malt, Neither by sea nor land,                             10
That ever mair shall cross my hause, Till my love comes to hand.
