Up then came Lord Lauderdale,                            «
Up frae the Lawland Border; And he has come to court this may,
A' mounted in good order.
He told na her father, he told na her mother, And he told na ane o' her kin;                           10
But he whisper'd the bonnie lassie hersell, And has her favour won.
But out then cam Lord Lochinvar,
Out frae the English Border, All for to court this bonny may,                              u
"Weel mounted, and in order.
He told her father, he told her mother,
And a' the lave o' her kin ; But he told na the bonnie may hersell,
Till on her wedding e'en.                                       20
She sent to the Lord o' Lauderdale,
Gin he wad come and see ; And he has sent word back again,
Weel answered she suld be.
And he has sent a messenger,                                  ss
Right quickly through the land, And raised mony an armed man - To be at his command.
