By J. I. Gilbert.

A highland laddie there lived o'er the way,
A laddie both noble, and gallant and gay.
Who loved a lassie as noble as he,
A bonnie sweet lassie-the maid of Dundee.
This lassie had lands, but the laddie had none.
And yet to her it was all the same.
For dearly she loved him, and said she knew
This laddie, dear laddie was glide and true.

Ere years or even months had fled,
This laddie and lassie were happily wed;
Nae better wifey e'er lived on the lea
Than bonnie sweet Bessie, the inaid of Dundee!
A happier hame nae mou ever had
Than this that held twa hearts sac glad.
And ne'er did Bessie have cause to rue
Her wedding this laddie, sae gude and true.

But sorrow came to her heart one day.
And her dear darlin' was taken away,
Then oh! how sad and lone was she,
Boor bonnie sweet Bessie, the maid of Dundee.
And when in the ground her darlin' they laid,
Her heart then broke, and she fervently prayed,
"O God in heaven, let me go,' too,
And be wi' my laddie, sae gude and true!"
