O, open the door some pity to shew,
If love it may na be, O ! Tho' thou hast been false, I'll ever prove true—
O, open the door to me, O !
Cauld is the blast upon my pale cheek,
But caulder thy love for me, O: The frost, that freezes the life at my heart,
Is naught to my pains frae thee, O !
The wan moon sets behind the white wave,
And Time is setting with me, O: False friends, false love, farewell! for mair
I'll ne'er trouble them, nor thee, O !
She has open'd the door, she has open'd it wide, She sees the pale corse on the plain, O !
* My true love,' she cried, and sank down by his side-Never to rise again, O !
No. 142. Lang hae we parted been.
Tune : Laddie lie near me.
Scots Musical Museum, 1790, No. 218.
Lang hae we parted been,
Lassie, my dearie ;
Now we are met again,
Lassie, lie near me !
Chorus. Near me, near me,
Lassie, lie near me! Lang hast thou lien thy lane, Lassie, lie near me.
A' that I hae endur'd,
Lassie, my dearie, Here in thy arms is cur'd ! Lassie, lie near me.
