HYND HORN.
From Motherwell's Minstrelsy, p. 35.
Near Edinburgh was a young child born, With a hey UUelu and a how lo Ian ;
And his name it was called Young Hynd Horn, And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
Seven lang years he served the King,                   f
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian ;
And it's a' for the sake of his dochter Jean, And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
The King an angry man was he,
With a hey lillelu and a how h Ian ;                 10
He sent young Hynd Horn to the sea,
And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
"01 never saw my love before,
With a hey lillelu and a how lo Ian;
Till I saw her thro' an augre bore,                       is
And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie.
"And she gave to me a gay gold ring, With a hey UUelu and a how lo Ian ;
With three shining diamonds set therein,
And the birk and the brume blooms bonnie. a>
