Broadside ballad entitled 'Jemmie Forrest'
Hey, Jemmie Forrest, are ye waukin' yet ?
The frigate guns they loud did roar,
And syne the Castle thunder'd loud ;
The Queen she's come to Granton Pier,
The Queen she's come to Brandon Street,
My Lord, my Lord, the Queen she's here,
Gae bring to me my robes o' state ;
Awa' to Dalkeith ye maun hie,
