From Child #65
There lived a lady in Scotland
Hey my love, ho my joy
There lived a lady in Scotland
So dearly she loved me
There lived a lady in Scotland
She fell in love with an Englishman
Bonnie Susie Cleland, she's to be burned in Dundee

The father to his daughter came
Will you forsake this Englishman?
If you will not this Englishman forsake
Then I will burn you at the stake

Where may I find a pretty little boy
To carry tokens to my joy
Bring to him this right hand glove
Tell him to find another love
Bring to him this wee pen knife
Tell him to find another wife
Bring to him this gay gold ring
Tell him I'm going to my burning

The father he put up the stake
The brothers the fire did make
Bonnie Susie Cleland,
she was burned at Dundee
