70                           LIZZIE LINDSAT.
" My name is young Donald M'Donald,
My name I will never deny, My father he is an auld shepherd,
Sae weel as he can herd the kye!                 
" 0 but I would give you ten guineas,
To have her one hour in a room, To get her fair body a picture
To keep me from thinking long."
"01 value not your ten guineas,                      «
As little as you value mine ; But if that you covet my daughter,
Take her with you, if you do incline."
" Pack up my silks and my satins,
And pack up my hose and my shoon, so And likewise my clothes in small bundles,
And away wi' young Donald I'll gang."
They pack'd up her silks and her satins, They pack'd up her hose and her shoon,
And likewise her clothes in small bundles, « And away with young Donald she's gane.
"When that they cam' to the Hielands, The braes they were baith lang and stey;
Bonnie Lizzie was wearied wi' ganging— She had travell'd a lang summer day. «>
