BTJRD ELLEN. 215
" O tell me this now, good lord John,
And a word ye dinna lie, How far it is to your lodgin,
Whare we this night maun be ? " *>
" 0 see na ye yon castell, Ellen,
That shines sae fair to see ? There is a lady in it, Ellen,
Will sinder you and me.
" There is a lady in that castell «
"Will sinder you and I"— " Betide me weal, betide me wae,
I sail gang there and try."
" My dogs shall eat the good white bread, And ye shall eat the bran; so
Then will ye sigh, and say, alas! That ever I was a man !"
"01 shall eat the good white bread, And your dogs shall eat the bran ;
And I hope to live to bless the day, m
That ever ye was a man."
" 0 my horse shall eat the good white meal,
And ye sail eat the corn; Then will ye curse the heavy hour
That ever your love was born." «
