No. 48. Turn again, thou fair Eliza !
Tune: A Gaelic air Scots Musical Museum, 1792, No. 368.
Turn again, thou fair Eliza!
Ae kind blink before we part; Rue on thy despairing lover—
Canst thou break his faithfu' heart ? Turn again, thou fair Eliza!
If to love thy heart denies, For pity hide the cruel sentence
Under friendship's kind disguise 1
Thee, dear maid, hae I offended?
The offence is loving thee : Canst thou wreck his peace for ever,
Wha for thine wad gladly die?
