Bessy Bell and Mary Gray (3)

O, Bessy Bell and Mary Gray
They were twa bonny lasses,
They bigg'd a bower on yon Burn-brae
And theek'd it o'er wi' rashes.
     Fair Bessy Bell I lov'd yestreen
     And thought I ne'er cou'd alter
     But Mary Gray's twa pawky een
     They gar my fancy falter.

From Orpheus Caledonius
Note: The ladies in this version seem to have escaped the plague.
