Jamieson's Popular Ballads, ii. 135, from Mrs. Brown's recitation. Barbara Livingston, a shorter piece, with a different catastrophe, is given in the Appendix, from Motherwell's collection.
- 0 bonny Baby Livingstone Gaed out to view the hay ; And by it cam him Glenlyon, Staw bonny Baby away.
And first he's taen her silken coat,                     »
And neist her satten gown ; Syne row'd her in his tartan plaid,
And happ'd her round and roun.'
He's mounted her upon a steed,
And roundly rade away ;                                10
And ne'er loot her look back again
The Iee-lang simmer day.
