No. 194. Cauld is the e'enin blast.
Tune : Peggy Ramsay Scots Musical Museum, 1803, No. 583.
Cauld is the e'enin blast O' Boreas o'er the pool,
An' dawin it is dreary
When birks are bare at Yule.
O, cauld blaws the e'enin blast, When bitter bites the frost,
And in the mirk and dreary drift,
The hills and glens are lost! Ne'er sae murky blew the night . That drifted o'er the hill, But bonie Peg-a-Ramsay • Gat grist to her mill.
No. 195. The taylor he cam here to sew.
Tune: The Drummer Aird's Airs, 1782, i. No. 129.
