From Buchan's Ballads of the North of Scotland, ii. 133.
" Attchanachib Gordon is bonny and braw, He would tempt any woman that ever he saw ; He would tempt any woman, so has he tempted me, And I'll die if I getna my love Auchanachie."
In came her father, tripping on the floor,              «
Says, " Jeanie, ye're trying the tricks o' a whore; Ye're caring for them that cares little for thee, Ye must marry Salton, leave Auchanachie.
" Auchanachie Gordon, he is but a man,
Altho' he be pretty, where lies his free land ? 10
Salton's lands they lie broad, his towers they stand
hie, Ye must marry Salton, leave Auchanachie.
