No. 39. I gaed a waefu' gate yestreen.
Tune : The blue ey'd lassie Scots Musical. Museum, 1790, No. 294.
I gaed a waefu' gate yestreen,
A gate I fear I'll dearly rue; I gat my death frae twa sweet een,
Twa lovely een o' bonie blue! 'Twas not her golden ringlets bright,
Her lips like roses wat wi' dew, Her heaving bosom lily-white—
It was her een sae bonie blue.
