JOHNIE OF COCKLESMUIR. 19
Up bespak the first forester,
The first forester of a'— s>
"And this be Johnie o' Cocklesmuir,
It's time we were awa."
Up bespak the niest forester,
The niest forester of a'— "And this be Johnie Cocklesmuir, a
To him we winna draw."
The first shot that they did shoot,
They woundit him on the thie; Up bespak the uncle's son,—
" The niest will gar him die." 60
" Stand stout, stand stout, my noble dogs,
Stand stout and dinna flee ; Stand fast, stand fast, my gude gray hunds,
And we will mak them die."
He has killed six o' the proud foresters, a
And wounded the seventh sair; He laid his leg out owre his steed,
Says, " I will kill na mair."
