THE BONNIE BRIER-BUSH
But were they a' true that were far awa'? Oh ! were they a' true that were far awa'? They drew up wi' glaiket Englishcrs at Carlisle ha\ And forgot auld friends when far awa'.
Ye'll come nae mair, Jamie, where aft ye hae been, Ye'll come nae mair, Jamie, to Athol Green; Ye Io'ed owre weel the dancin' at Carlisle ha*, And forgot the hieland hills that were far awa'.
He's comin' frae the north that's to fancy me, He's comin' frae the north that's to fancy me, A feather in his bonnet, and a ribbon at his knee; He's a bonnie Hieland laddie, and you be na he.
H. 4868.
