140                  LORD JAMIE DOUGLAS.
" Fare ye week then, Jamie Douglas,
I need care as little as ye care for me ; so
The Earl of Mar is my father dear, And I soon will see my ain countrie.
" Ye thought that I was like yoursell,
And loving ilk ane I did see; But here I swear by the heavens clear,            es
I never loved a man but thee."
Slowly, slowly rose I up,
And slowly, slowly I cam down;
And when he saw me sit in my coach,
He made his drums and trumpets sound. 90
When I into my coach was set. My tenants all were with me tane;
They set them down upon their knees, And they begg'd me to come back again.
It's " fare ye weel, my bonnie palace ;              95
And fare ye weel, my children three:
God grant your father may get mair grace, And love thee better than he has done me."
It's " fare ye weel, my servants all;
And you, my bonnie children three: 100 God grant your father grace to be kind
Till I see you safe in my ain countrie.
