JOHNIE SCOT. 55
When they were all marching away,
Most pleasant for to see, There was not so much as a married man
In Johnie's companie. a>
Johnie Scot himsell was the foremost man
In the company that did ride; His uncle was the second man,
Wi' his rapier by his side.
The first gude town that Johnie came to, 85
He made the bells be rung; And when he rode the town all owre,
He made the psalms be sung.
The next gude town that Johnie came to, He made the drums beat round; a>
And the third gude town that he came to, He made the trumpets sound,
Till King Henry and all his merry men A-marvelled at the sound.
And when they came to Earl Percy's yates, w
They rode them round about; And who saw he but his own true love
At a window looking out ?
" 0 the doors are bolted with iron and steel, So are the windows about; 100
