LAMMIKIN. Seep. 94.
Firtlay's Scottish Ballads, ii. 47.
Lammikin was as gude a mason
As ever hewed a stane ; He biggit Lord Weire's castle,
But payment gat he nane.
" Sen ye winna gle me my guerdon, lord, s
Sen ye winna gie me my hire, This gude castle, sae stately built,
I sail gar rock wi' fire.
" Sen ye winna gie me my wages, lord, Ye sail hae cause to rue:" 10
And syne he brewed a black revenge, And syne he vowed a vow.
The Lammikin sair wroth, sair wroth,
Returned again to Downe ; But or he gaed, he vow'd and vow'd, u>
The castle should sweep the ground.
