THE BONNIE EAEL O' MtJEEAT. 12]
He was a braw gallant,
And he play'd at the glove ; And the bonny Earl of Murray,
0 he was the Queen's love.                           20
0 lang will his lady
Look o'er the castle Down, Ere she see the Earl of Murray
Come sounding thro' the town.
THE BONNIE EARL 0' MURRAY.
From Finlay's Scottish Ballads, ii. 21.
" Open the gates,
And let him come in; He is my brother Huntly,
He'll do him nae harm."
The gates they were opent,                                s
They let him come in; But fause traitor Huntly,
He did him great harm.
He's ben and ben,
And ben to his bed;                                         io
And with a sharp rapier
He stabbed him dead.
