GLASGOW PEGGY.
77
" I have got cows and ewes anew,
I've got gowd and gear already; Sae I dinna want your cows nor ewes,             is
But I will hae your bonnie Peggy."
" I'll follow you oure moss and muir, I'll follow you oure mountains many,
I'll follow you through frost and snaw,
I'll stay na langer wi' my daddie."                 a>
He set her on a gude brown steed, Himself upon a gude grey naigie;
They're oure hills, and oure dales, And he's awa wi' his bonnie Peggy.
As they rade out by Glasgow toun,                   as
And doun by the hills o' Achildounie,
There they met the Earl of Hume, And his auld son, riding bonnie.
Out bespak the Earl of Hume,
And 0 but he spak wondrous sorry, » " The bonniest lass about a' Glasgow toun,
This day is awa wi' a hieland laddie."
As they rade bye auld Drymen toun, The lassies leuch and lookit saucy,
That the bonniest lass they ever saw, Sud be riding awa wi' a hieland laddie.
