THE DUKE OF GORDON'S DAUGHTER
'Then hoist up your sail,' says the Captain, ' And we'll hie back owre the sea;
And I'll gae to bonny Castle Gordon, There my dear Jeanie to see.'
He came to bonny Castle Gordon, And upon the green stood he :
The porter out with a loud loud shout, 'Here comes our Captain Ogilvie !'—
' You're welcome, pretty Captain Ogilvie, Your fortune 's advanced, I hear;
No stranger can come to my castle That I do love so dear.'—
' Put up your hat, Duke of Gordon ;
Let it fa' not from your head. It never set the noble Duke of Gordon
To bow to a single soldier lad.
' Sir, the last time I was at your Castle,
You would not let me in ; Now I'm come for my wife and children5
No friendship else I claim.'
Down the stair Lady Jean came tripping,
With the saut tear in her e'e; She had a babe in every arm,
And another at her knee.
