Fyvie." " What afterwards became of Bonny Andrew Lammie," says Jamieson, " we have not been able to learn ; but the current tradition of the ' Lawland leas of Fyvie,' says, that some years subsequent to the mel­ancholy fate of poor Titty's Nanny, her sad story being mentioned, and the ballad sung in a company in Edin­burgh when he was present, he remained silent and motionless, till he was discovered by a groan suddenly bursting from him, and several of the buttons flying from his waistcoat."
At Mill o' Tifty hVd a man, In the neighbourhood of Fyvie ;
He had a lovely daughter fair, Was called bonny Annie.
Her bloom was like the springing flower That salutes the rosy morning;
With innocence and graceful mien Her beauteous form adorning.
Lord Fyvie had a trumpeter Whose name was Andrew Lammie;
He had the art to gain the heart Of Mill o' Tiftie's Annie.
Proper he was, both young and gay,
His like was not in Fyvie ; No one was there that could compare
With this same Andrew Lammie.
