136 THE BATTLE OF PHILIPHAUGH.
I'll do my best to banish him Away frae this country."
He halved his men in equal parts,
His purpose to fulfill;                                   ro
The one part kept the water side, The other gaed round the hill.
The nether party fired brisk, Then turn'd and seem'd to rin ;
And then they a' came frae the trench, « And cry'd, " The day's our ain!"
The rest then ran into the trench,
And loosed their cannons a': And thus, between his armies twa,
He made them fast to fa'.                            so
Now let us a' for Lesly pray,
And his brave company, For they hae vanquish'd great Montrose,
Our cruel enemy.
