THE WEDDING OF
THE WEDDING OF ROBIN HOOD AND LITTLE JOHN.
From Kinloch's Ancient Scottish BaUada, p. 69.
The King has wedded an ill woman,
Into some foreign land ; His daughters twa, that stood in awe,
They bravely sat and sang.
Then in be-came their step-mother,                s
Sae stately steppin' ben ; " 0 gin I live and bruik my life,
I'll gar ye change your tune."
" O we sang ne'er that sang, ladie,
But we will sing again ;                              w
And ye ne'er boor that son, ladie, We wad lay .our love on.
" But we will cow our yellow locks,
A little abune our bree; And we will on to gude green-wud,              is
And serve for meat and fee.
