Music of the Waters.             119
My lad's at the bar, at the bar, at the bar, . My lad's at the bar whom I love best."
Sometimes the last two lines of this song are varied—
" Blaw the lad ti' the bar, ti' the bar, ti' the bar, Blaw the lad ti' the bar that I love best."
THE WATER OF TYNE.
" O where is the boatman ? my bonny hinny ! O where is the boatman ? bring him to me,— To ferry me over the Tyne to my honey, And I will remember the boatman and thee.
" O bring me a boatman, I'll give any money, And you for your trouble rewarded shall be, To ferry me over the Tyne to my honey, Or scull him across that rough river to me."
