280                    THE E1PHIN KNIGHT.
" I'l not quite my plaid for my life,
Ba, ba, &c. It haps my seven bairns and my wife.
The wind shall not blow my plaid awa."
" My maidenhead I'l then keep' still',
Ba, ba, &c. Let the Elphin Knight do what he will.
The wind's not blown my plaid awa"
" My plaid awa, my plhid awa, And o'er the hill and far awa,
And far awa, to Norrowa, My plaid shall not be blown awa."
