Jesus, Lord mickle of might Johnnie rose up in a May morning Joseph was an old man
King Easter has courted her for her lands Kinge Arthur lives in merry Carlisle
Lady Alice was sitting in her bower-window
Late at e'en, drinkin' the wine .
Let never a man a wooing wer.d .
Lithe and listen, Gentlemen
Lord Bateman was a noble lord .
Lord Ingram and Childe Vyet
Lord Lovel he stood at his castle-gate .
Lord Thomas and Fair Annet
Lordings, listen, and hold you still
Lully, lulley I lully, lulley ! .
Marie Hamilton's to the kirk gane
Mark this song, for it is true
May Margaret sits in her bower door .
Mery it was in the grene foreste .
' My love has built a bonny ship, and set her
My love he buiit me a bonny bower
My plaid awa', my plaid awa'
Now is Christemas y-come . Now Liddesdale has lain lang in . Now Liddesdale has ridden a raid . Now list and lithe, you gentlemen Now ponder well, you parents dear
O Alison Gross, that lives in yon tow'r
O Bessie Bell and Mary Gray
O bonny Baby Livingston .
' O brent's your brow, my Lady Elspat
O did ye ever hear o' brave Earl Brand ?
O have ye na heard o' the fause Sakelde ?
O  heard ye na o' the silly blind Harper
' O I forbid you, maidens a'
O Jellon Grame sat in Silverwood
' O lady, rock never your young son young
O Rose the Red and While Lilly.
