THE DUKE OF GORDON'S DAUGHTER. 105
Lady Jean had not been married,
Not a year but three, Till she had a babe in every arm,                       «
Another upon her knee.
" 0 but I'm weary of wandering!
0 but my fortune is bad! It sets not the duke of Gordon's daughter
To follow a soldier lad.                                       «o
" 0 but I'm weary of wandering!
0 but I think lang! It sets not the duke of Gordon's daughter,
To follow a single man."
When they came to the Highland hills, as
Cold was the frost and snow; Lady Jean's shoes they were all torn,
No farther could she go.
" 0 wo to the hills and the mountains !
Wo to the wind and the rain !                           ro
My feet is sore with going barefoot,
No further am I able, to gang.
" Wo to the hills and the mountains!
Wo to the frost and the snow ! My feet is sore with going barefoot,                   
No farther am I able for to go.
