76                             QUEEN JEANIE.
" Queen Jeanie, Queen Jeanie, that's what I'll
never do, To rip up your two sides to save your babie." 20
But with sighing and sobbing she's fallen in a
swoon, Her side it was ript up, and her babie was found ; At this bonie babie's christ'ning there was meikle
joy and mirth, But bonnie Queen Jeanie lies cold in the earth.
Six and six coaches, and six and six more, 25 And royal King Henry went mourning before ; 0 two and two gentlemen carried her away, But royal King Henry went weeping away.
O black were their stockings, and black were
their bands, And black were the weapons they held in their
hands;                                                                  so
O black were their mufflers, and black were their
shoes, And black were the cheverons they drew on their
luves.
They mourned in the kitchen, and they mourn'd
in the ha', But royal King Henry mourn'd langest of a'. Farewell to fair England, farewell for evermore, ss For the fair flower of England will never shine
more!
