Sae fair her hair, fae brent her brow,
Sae bonny blue her een, my dearie;
Sat white her teeth, fae fweet her mou'
The mair T kifs, file's ay my dearie.
OVr yon bank, and o'er y on brae,
O'er yon ir.ofs amang the heather;
I'll kilt my coat aboon my knee.
And follow my love thro' the water.
Down amang the broom, the broom,
Down amang the broom, my dearie.
The laflie loft a filken fnood,
That coft her monv a blirt and bleary-
Same Tune.

Can I ftay when fhe's not near me;
Cruel fates i once deign to hear me-
The charms of grandeur don't decoy me
Fair Eli/a muft enjoy me;
My crown and fceptre I refign,
The fhepherd's life fhall ftill be mine
