O she has ta'en her thro' the ha', And on her son began to ca\
' What did you wi' that gay gold ring
I bade you keep abune a' thing ?
' What did you wi' that little pen-knife I bade you keep while you had life ?
' What did you wi' the bonny beads
I bade you keep against your needs ??—
• I gae them to a ladye gay
I met i' the grene-wood on a day.
' But I wad gie a' my ha's and tours, I had that bright burd in my bours :
' But I wad gie my very life I had that ladye to my wife! '
' Now keep, my son, your ha's and tours; Ye have that bright burd in your bours.
' And keep, my son, your very life, Ye have that ladye to your wife.'
Now, or a month was come and gane, The ladye bore him a bonny son.
