Berwick
Go to Berwick, Johnnie
John Hamilton (1761–1819)
 
GO to Berwick, Johnnie;
  Bring her frae the Border;
Yon sweet bonny lassie,
  Let her gae nae farther.
English loons will twine ye        5
  O’ the lovely treasure;
But we ’ll let them ken
  A sword wi’ them we ’ll measure.
 
Go to Berwick, Johnnie,
  And regain your honor;        10
Drive them o’er the Tweed,
  And show our Scottish banner.
I am Rob, the King,
  And ye are Jock, my brither;
But, before we lose her,        15
  We ’ll a’ there thegither.
