THE BRAES animate
0' BALQUHIDDER.
389
When the rude wintry win'
Idly raves round our dwelling, And the roar of the linn
On the night-breeze is swelling; Sae merrily we'll sing
As the storm rattles o'er us, Till the dear shieling ring
Wi' the light lilting chorus.
Will ye go, etc.
Now the summer is in prime,
Wi' the flowers richly blooming, And the wild mountain thyme
A' the moorlands perfuming; To our dear native scenes
Let us journey together, Where glad innocence reigns,
'Mang the braes of Balquhidder. Will ye go, etc.
OH, TAKE HER, BUT BE FAITHFUL STILL.
This song is a joint composition of Charles Jefferys and Sidney Nelson.
