I. LOVE ! PERSONAL                            93
If thou hast met this fair one, When frae her thou hast parted,
If every other fair one
But her thou hast deserted, And thou art broken-hearted;
O, that's the lassie o' my heart, My lassie ever dearer ;
O, that's the queen o' womankind, And ne'er a ane to peer her!
No. 99. There's nane shall ken, there's nane can guess.
Tune : I'llgae nae mair to your town Bremner's Scots Reels, 1757, p. 6.
Chorus. Ill ay ca1 in by yon town
And by yon garden-green again I I'll ay co? in by yon town,
And see my borne Jean again.
There's nane shall ken, there's nane can guess What brings me back the gate again,
But she, my fairest faithfu' lass,
And stownlins we shall meet again.
She'll wander by the aiken tree,
When trystin time draws near again ;
And when her lovely form I see, O, haith ! she's doubly dear again.
