so wild.
O Willie, weel I mind, I lent you my hand,

Take, oh, take those lips away,

That life's a fanght there is nae doubt, .
Tell me where is the violet fled,

The bell had tolld the midnight hour,
The boatswain's shrill whistle pip'd all hands ahoy,
The cauld blasts o* winter blaw chill o'er the plain,
The gale is bigh, the bark is light, . .
The gloamin' frae the welkin high, . . .
The health I once so much enjoyed, .
The kiss, dear maid, thy lip has left,
They lighted a taper at the dead hour of night,
The Lord's Marie has kepp'd her locks,

The lovely Ellen was laid in her shroud, .
The midges dance aboon the burn, . . note
The night-dew fell on a lovely rose, . .
The old shepherd's dog, like his master, was

The pearl of the fountain,
The primrose may blaw in the dawn o' the
spring. . .

There is an hour of peaceful rest, . . note
There is, when day's last shadows fiy, .
There's kames o'hinny 'tween my luve's lips, note
There's none to soothe my soul to rest,
The rose that blooms on yonder brier,
The russet suit of camel's hair,
The smiling plains, profusely gay, .

The smoke from yon cottage no longer is rising,
The song that lightens the languid way,
The storm sweeps wildly through the sky, . ,

Wherever I wander, be't foul or be't fair, .

seek the valley, .
