No. 64. When first I came to Stewart Kyle.
Tune : I hod a horse, and I had nae main Scots Mus. Museum, 1788, No. 185.
When first I came to Stewart Kyle
My mind it was na steady; Where'er I gaed, where'er I rade,
A mistress still I had ay ; But when I came roun' by Mauchline toun,
Not dreadin any body, My heart was caught, before I thought,
And by a Mauchline lady

Tune : Borne Dundee.
In Mauchline there dwells six proper young belles,
The pride of the place and its neighbourhood a', Their carriage and dress, a stranger would guess,
In Lon'on or Paris they'd gotten it a1. Miss Miller is fine, Miss Markland's divine,
Miss Smith she has wit, and Miss Betty is braw; There's beauty and fortune to get wi' Miss Morton,
But Armour's the jewel for me o' them a'.
