No. 294. Come boat me der, come row me o'er.
Tune : Over the water to Charlie Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 187.
Come boat me o'er, come row me o'er,
Come boat me o'er to Charlie; I'll gie John Ross another bawbee
To boat me o'er to Charlie,
Chorus. We'll o'er the zvater, we'll o'er the sea, We'll o'er the water to Charlie ; Come weal, come woe, we'll gather and gou And live and die wi' Charlie.
I lo'e weel my Charlie's name,
Tho1 some there be abhor him ; But O, to see auld Nick gaun hame,
And Charlie's faes before him !
I swear and vow by moon and stars
And sun that shines so early, If I had twenty thousand lives,
I'd die as aft for Charlie.
