THE GREAT SILKIE OF SULE SKERRIE
vir ' An' thu sail marry a proud gunner,
An' a proud gunner I'm sure he'll be, An' the very first schot that ere he schoots,
He'll schoot baith my young son and me.'
32. The Wife of Usher's Well
T HERE lived a wife at Usher's well, And a wealthy wife was she; She had three stout and stalwart sons, And sent them o'er the sea.
They hadna been a week from her,
A week but barely ane, When word came to the carline wife
That her three sons were gane.
in They hadna been a week from her,
A week but barely three, When word came to the carline wife
That her sons she'd never see.
' I wish the wind may never cease,
Nor fashes in the flood, Till my three sons come hame to me
In earthly flesh and blood! '
