PART II. SCOTTISH SONGS.
CXV
GALLA WATER.
But there is ane, a secret ane,
Aboon them a' I loe him better; And I'll be his, and he'll be mine ;
The bonnie lad o' Galla water.
Atho' his daddie was nae laird,
And tho' I ha'e na meikle tocher, Yet rich in kindest, truest love,
We'll tent our flocks by Galla water.
It ne'er was wealth, it ne'er was wealth, That coft contentment, peace, or pleasure ;
The bands and bliss o' mutual love, O that's the chiefest warld's treasure!
Words by Burns. Tune Galla Water.
