BLAIRGOWRIE.

(Copyright.)
PEICE ONE PENNY.

This Popular Song can always be had at the Poet's Box,
182 OVERGATE DUNDEE.

As I gead oot ae May morning,
Ae morning very early,
There I spied a pretty fair maid,
Lamenting o' her dearie.

CHORUS.

So fare-ye-weel tae Blairgowrie,
Whaur oftimes I've been cheery;
An' fare-ye-weel tae Bromely Brae,
For I hae lost my dearie.

But I'll put on my grand gold ring,
An' wear it as a token,
Tae let the fouk ower there a' ken
The bonds o' love's been broken.

Noo I'll put on my braw new gown,
An wear it as a token ;
Tae let the fouk ower there a' ken
That I'm noo quite for gotten.

But there's just as guid fish in the sea
As ever has been taken;
So I'll cast my net an' try again,
Tho' I've been ance forsaken.

But I'll gang hame tae my ain wee toon,
Whaur I was bred an' born,
For there's a laddie that I ken,
Wha'll merry me the morn.
