No. 277. When first my brave Johnie lad.
Tune: Cock up your.beaver Scots Musical Museum, 1792, No. 309.
[When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town, He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown, But now he has gotten a hat and a feather— Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver !]
Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush, We'll over the Border and gie them a brush ; There's somebody there we'll teach better behaviour— Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver ! 3 2
