The So7ig Book
213
Or I had fed an Athole gled,
On the braes o' Killiecrankie, O. An' ye had been, &c.
Words slightly altered by Burns.
CLXII
THE BLETHRIE O'T
Jockie was the laddie that held the pleuch,
But now he's got gowd and gear eneuch,
He thinks nae mair o' me that wears the plniden coat;
May the shame fa' the gear and the blethrie o't!
Jeany was the lassie that muckit the byre, But now she is clad in her silken attire ; And Jockie says he lo'es her, and me has forgot, May the shame fa' the gear and the blethrie o't!
But all this shall never daunton me,
Sae lang as I keep my fancy free ;
For the lad that's sae inconstant is nae worth a groat,
May the shame fa' the gear and the blethrie o't!
From Johnson's Museum.
