Broadside ballad entitled 'The Star of Glengary'
G L E N G A R Y .
The red moon is up on the moss-covered mountain;
The hour is at hand when I promis'd to rove,
I ken there's the miller, wi' plenty o' siller,
But my ain bonny Mary, the Star o' Glengary,
Tis long since we first trod the Highlands together,
Two frolicsome bairns, gaily starting the deer;
Sic joy ne'er was seen as when Mary was near!
And still she's the blossom I wear in my bosom,?
A blossom I'd cherish and wear till I dee;
