Verses written under the Portrait of Fergusson
Song—0 once I lov'd a bonnie lass,
Beware o' Bonnie Ann,
My Bonnie Mary,
There's a youth in this city,
My heart's in the Highlands,
The ranting dog the daddie v't,
Craigie-burn Wood, .
I do confess thou art sae fair,
Yon wild mossy mountains,
Wha is that at my bower door?
My father was a farmer upon the Carrick bor.
Tho' cruel fate should bid us part,
Ae fond kiss, and then we sever,
Now bank and brae are claith?d in green, 144
The bonie lad that's far awa,
Out over the Forth I look to the north, 145
I'll ay ca' in by yon town,
Whistle o'er the lave o't,
Here's a bottle and an honest friend,
Ilk care and fear, when thou art near,
On Cessnock banks there lives a lass,
Wae is my heart,
Yestreen I had a pint o' wine,
The deil cam fiddling thro' the town,
Powers celestial, whose protection,
I red you beware of the hunting,
Young Peggy blooms our bonniest lass, 156
Amang the trees where humming bees, 157
One night as I did wander,
There was a lad was born at Kyle, .
When first I came to Stewart Kyle,
Altho' my bed were in yon muir,
O raging fortune's withering blast,
Here's a health to them that's awa,
Her flowing locks the raven's wing,
To thee lov'd Nith, thy gladsome plains, ib.
