From Herd's Scottish Songs, i. 157.
A' the boys of merry Linkim
"War playing at the ba', An up it stands him sweet Sir Hugh,
The flower among them a'.
He keppit the ba' than wi' his foot, *
And catcht it wi' his knee, And even in at the Jew's window,
He gart the bonny ba' flee.
" Cast out the ba' to me, fair maid,
Cast out the ba' to me." 10
" Ah never a bit of it," she says, " Till ye come up to me.
" Come up, sweet Hugh, come up, dear Hugh,
Come up and get the ba'; " " I winna come, I mayna come, w
Without my bonny boys a'."
