GEORDIE.
" If ye'll stay here a little while, Ye'll see Geordie hangit shortly."
Then up bespak a baron bold,
And 0 but he spak bonnie, " If ye'll pay doun five hundred crowns,
Ye'se get your true-love Geordie."
Some lent her guineas, some lent her crowns, 25
Some lent her shillings monie ; And she's paid doun five hundred crowns,
And she's gotten her bonnie love Geordie.
When she was mounted on her hie steed, And on ahint her Geordie,                              so
Nae bird on the brier e'er sang sae clear, As the young knight and his ladie.
" My Geordie 0, my Geordie 0,
0 the love 1 hear to Geordie ; The very stars in the firmament                      as
Bear tokens I he Geordie."
