" My bonny Lizae Baillie,
Let nane o' these things daunt ye ;
Te'll hae nae need to card or spin,                    u
Your mither weel can want ye."
Now she's cast aff her bonny shoen,
Made o' the gilded leather, And she's put on her highland brogues,
To skip amang the heather:                            ao
And she's cast aff her bonny gown,
Made o' the silk and sattin, And she's put on a tartan plaid,
To row amang the braken.
She wadna hae a Lawland laird,                       a
Nor be an English lady ; But she wad gang wi' Duncan Graeme,
And row her in his plaidie.
She was nae ten miles frae the town, "When she began to weary ;                             so
She aften looked back, and said, " Farewell to Castlecarry.
" The first place I saw my Duncan Graeme,
Was near yon holland bush ; My father took frae me my rings,                       es
My rings but and my purse.
