They rode on through moss and muir, And so did they owre mountains many,
Until they cam to yonder glen,
And she's lain doun wi' her hieland laddie. «
Gude green hay was Peggy's bed, And brakens war her blankets bonnie ;
Wi' his tartan plaid aneath her head,
And she's lain doun wi' her hieland laddie.

There's sheets and blankets, and a' thing ready, And wadna they be angry wi' me,
To see me lie sae wi' a hieland laddie."
" Tho' there's beds and beddin in your father's house,
Sheets and blankets and a' made ready, so Yet why sud they be angry wi' thee,
Though I be but a hieland laddie ?

It's a' plow'd and sawn already; I am Donald the Lord of Skye,                        m
And why sud na Peggy be call'd a lady ?
"I hae fifty gude milk kye,
A' tied to the staws already ; I am Donald the Lord of Skye,
And why sud na Peggy be call'd a lady ! »
