The hounds they knew the lady well, And nane o' them they wou'd her bite;
Save ane that is ca'd Gaudy-where, I wat he did the lady smite. 20
" O wae mat worth ye, Gaudy-where,
An ill reward this is to me; For ae bit that I gae the lave,
I'm very sure I've gi'en you three.
" For me, alas! there's nae remeid, at
Here comes the day that I maun die;
I ken ye lov'd your master well, And sae, alas for me, did I!"
A captain lay ower his ship window, Just as the sun was gaen down; so
There he beheld her, fair Annie, As she was hunted frae the town.
" Gin yell forsake father and mither, And sae will ye your friends and kin,
Gin ye'll forsake your lands sae broad, sj
Then come and I will take you in."
" Yes, I'll forsake baith father and mither, And sae will I my friends and kin,
Yes, I'll forsake my lands sae broad,
And come, gin ye will take me in." «
Then a' thing gaed frae fause Tamas, And there was naething byde him wi';
Then he thought lang for Arrandella, It was fair Annie for to see.
