And there I'll come and meet thee."
" My love, I go to Edinbro',
And for a while must leave thee;"
She sighed sore, and said no more                  &
But " I wish that I were wi' thee."
" I'll buy to thee a bridal gown,
My love, I'll buy it bonny;" " But I'll be dead, ere ye come back
To see your bonnie Annie."                         100
" If you'll be true and constant too, As my name's Andrew Lammie,
I shall thee wed, when I come back To see the lands of Fyvie."
" I will be true, and constant too,                   105
To thee, my Andrew Lammie;
But my bridal bed will ere then be made, In the green churchyard of Fyvie."
" Our time is gone, and now comes on, My dear, that I must leave thee ;             no
If longer here I should appear, Mill o' Tiftie he would see me."
