The Linking Laddie

THE LINKING LADDIE.

Tune"Push about the jorum."

An old fragment.

 
Waes me that e'er I made your bed!
 Waes me that e'er I saw ye!
For now I've lost my maidenhead,
 An' I ken na how they ca' ye.

My name's weel kend in my ain countrie,
 They ca' me the linkin' laddie;
An' ye had na been as willing as I,
 Shame fa' them wad e'er hae bade ye.
