CLXXXI
JOHNIE OGLE
But when the mither came to know it,
She said, " Ye disobedient son, I've gi'en ye schulin, and gi'en ye learnin,
And would ye to your ruin run ? "
He's gane to find his luve sae dear,
And said, "Luve, luve, it winna do, Because that mither's sae unwillin,
That ever I sud marry you."
The bonny creature, wi' sweet behaviour, While tears cam trinkling to the grand,
Said, " Bairns must obey their parents, Because they are by Scripture bound.
" There's nae coach, luve, on the shore, luve,
Nor a boat, luve, on the tide, And in a ship, luve, on the sea, luve,
Wi' nane but Johnie Ogle wad I ride."
Tune Johnic Ogle.
