Broadside ballad entitled 'Bonnie Braes o' Airlie'
BONNIE BRAES 0' AIRLIE.
Dedicated to the Countess of Airlie.
This Popular Song can always be had at the Poet's Box,
Bonnie sing the birds in the bright English valleys,
Winding flows the Cam, but it's no my ain loved Isla.
Thirsting for a name I left my native mountains,
Yonder gleams the prize for which I've aye been longing,
Darkness comes at ween, my stuggles sad prologing;
Dimly grow my een, an' my heart is breaking sairly,
