Motherwell's Minstrelsy, p. 186.
Lady Makjokie, Lady Marjorie,
Sat sewing her silken seam, And by her came a pale, pale ghost,
Wi' mony a sigh and mane.
" Are ye my father the king ? " she says, «
" Or are ye my brither John ? Or are ye my true love, sweet William,
From England newly come ? "
" I'm not your father the king," he says,
" No, no, nor your brither John ;                   10
But I'm your true love, sweet William, From England that's newly come."
