LET ME IN THIS A'E NIGHT.

(illegible text) lassie art thou sleeping yet ?
(illegible text)art thou wakin. I would wit?
(illegible text)or love has bound me, hand and foot,
And I would fain be in, jo.

chorus.

O let me in this ae night,
This ae, ae, ae night;
For pity’s sake this ae night,
O rise and let me in, jo.

Thou hear'st the wintry wind and weet,
Nae star blinks thro' the driving sleet;
Tak pity on my weary feet,
And shield me frae the rain, jo.
O let me in, &c.

The bitter blast around me blaws
Unheeded howls, unheeded fa's;
The cauldness o’ thy heart's the cause
Of a my grief and pain, jo.
O let me in, &c.
