The Haws of Cromdale/O ay my wife she dang me
O AY MY WIFE SHE DANG ME.
O ay my wife she dang me.
An’ aft my wife she bang'd me ;
If ye gie a woman a' her will,
Gude faith she'll soon o'er gang ye.
On peace and rest my mind was bent,
And fool I was I married ;
But never honest man's intent,
Sae cursedly miscarry'd.
Some sairie comfort still at last,
When a’ thir days are done, man,
My pains o' hell on earth is past,
I'm sure o’ bliss aboon man.
O ay my wife she &c.
