BONNY BABY LIVINGSTON.                 43
He's mounted him on a milk-white steed, And fast he rade away ;                                        m>
And he's come to Glenlyon's yett, About the close o' day.
As Baby at her window stood, And the west-wind saft did blaw,
She heard her Johnie's well-kent voice ns Aneath the castle wa'.
" 0 Baby, haste, the window loup;
I'll kep you in my arm ; My merry men a' are at the yett
To rescue you frae harm."                                  ia>
,She to the window fix'd her sheets,
And slipped safely down; And Johnie catched her in his arms,
Ne'er loot her touch the groun'.
Glenlyon and his brother John                               125
Were birling in the ha', When they heard Johnie's bridle ring
As fast he rade awa'.
" Rise, Jock ; gang out and meet the priest;
I hear his bridle ring;                                           iw
My Baby now shall be my wife,
Before the laverock sing."
