LORD BEICHAN AND SUSIE PYE. See p. 1. From Einloch's Ancient Scottish Ballads, p. 260.
Young Bbichan was in London born,
He was a man of hie degree ; He past thro' monie kingdoms great,
Until he cam unto Grand Turkie.
He view'd the fashions of that land, 5
Their way of worship viewed he; But unto onie of their stocks
He wadna sae much as bow a knee:
Which made him to be taken straight,
And brought afore their hie jurie; 10
The savage Moor did speak upricht, And made him meikle ill to dree.
In ilka shoulder they've bor*d a hole, And in ilka hole they've put a tree;
They've made him to draw carts and wains, « Till he was sick and like to dee.
