Knight of Liddesdale

Knight of Liddesdale

The Countess of Douglas out of her boure she came
And loudly there that she did call:
"It is for the Lord of Liddesdale
That I let all these tears downe fall."

Child #160
From Child, the entire ballad he found
From Hume of Godscroft, History of the Houses of Douglas and Angus, 1644

William Douglas, Knight of Liddesdale, was assassinated in 1353
