O lovely maid! how dear's thy pow'r
O Bell, thy looks have kill'd my heart
O Sandy, why leaves thou thy Nelly to mourn
O Belly Bell and Mary Gray
Of race divine thou needs must be
O Mary, thy graces and glances
Ofteer her up and had her gawn
O mither dear, I gin to fear
Of all the birds whose tuneful throats
One day I heard Mary say
O come away, come away
O had

away, had away
O wha's that at my chamber door
Over the mountains
O waly, waly up the bank
O virgin kind! we canna tell
O Jeany, Jeany, where has thou been
O dear Peggy, love's beguiling
Of all the girls that are so smart
Oh love! if a god thou wilt be
On a bank beside a willow
Oh lead me to some peaceful gloom
Oh lead me to some peaceful room
Of all comforts I miscarried
Oh! the charming month of May
One evening as I lay
One long Whitsun holy-day
One April morn, when from the sea
O surprising lovely fair
On a bank of Alowers
Oh! happy, happy grove
On Etrick banks, in a summer's night
O my heart ! my heavy, heavy heart

grant me, kind Bacchus
Of Leifter, fam'd for maidens fair,
One Sunday after mass
Of all the torment, all the care

Of all the girls in our town

395 Our Polly is a fad flut! nor heeds what we taught her 418 Our selves, like the great, to secure a retreat Old Chiron thus preach'd to his pupil Achilles On Whitsunday morning

429 Of all the trades from east to west





Pain'd with her sighting Jamie's love
Peggy, now the king's come
Pious Selinda goes to prayers
Pray now, John, let Fug prevail
Pretty parrot fay, when I was away
Phillis the fairelt of love's foes
Prithee, Susan, what dost mufe on
Prichee, Billy, be'nt fo filly
Proud woman, I scorn you
Ppillis despise not your faithful lover
Pure as the new-falleh snow appears

Return hameward, my heart again
Rob's Jock came to woo our Jenny
Remember, Damon, you did tell

Subjected to' the power of love
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
Sweet fir, for your courtesie
Swift, Sandy, Young, and Gay
Since all thy vows, false maid
Sandy in Edinburgh was born
Saw ye Jenny Nettles
Sound, found the mufick, found it
Speak on, speak thus, and still my grief
Stately itept he east the wa'
Send home my long stray'd eyes to me
Swees are the charms of her I love

Tho' beauty like the rose
Teach me, Chloe, how to prove
"Tis I have seven braw new gowns
The meal was dear short syne
Tell me, Hamilla, tell me why
Tell me, tell me, charming creature
'Twas summer, and the day was fair
The lait :ime I came o’er the moor
The lass of Peaty's mill
Tho' for seven years and mair honour, &c
Tibby has a store of charms
The pawky aula carle came o'er the lee
The lawland lads think they are fine
The collier has a daughter
This is not mine ain house
The maltman comes on Munday
There was a wife won'd in a glen
The Thepherd Adonis
The carle he came o'er the croft
The night her silent fable wore
*Twas at the fearful midnight hour
