From Buchan's Ballads of the North of Scotland, ii. 39.
It fell about the Lammas time,
When wightsmen won their hay; A' the squires in merry Linkum,
Went a' forth till a play.
They play'd until the evening tide, »
The sun was gaeing down ; A lady thro' plain fields was bound,
A lily leesome thing.
Two squires that for this lady pledged,
In hopes for a renown; i*
The one was eall'd the proud Seaton, The other Livingston.
" When will ye, Michaell o' Livingston,
Wad for this lady gay ? " " To-morrow, to-morrow," said Livingston, is
" To-morrow, if you may."
