Broadside ballad entitled 'The Grand Ascendency'
THE GRAND ASCENDENCY.
AIR." This is no mine ain house."
Oh ! this is now our ain house,
Lang hae we sigh'd?lang hae we pray'd,
Wi' base intrigues the State and Kirk
Wi' banishment to distant isles,
But wearied wi' distresses dire
The Unions then in millions join'd;
Likely date of publication:
1840-1845 shelfmark: L.C.Fol.178.A.2(011)
