VIII. My Ain Kind Dearie, O
By Carolina, Lady Nairne (1766–1845)
 
WILL ye gang owre the lea-rig,
  My ain kind dearie, O?
Will ye gang ower the lea-rig,
  My ain kind dearie, O?
Gin ye’ll tak’ heart, and gang wi’ me,        5
  Mishap will never steer ye, O;
Gude luck lies owre the lea-rig,
  My ain kind dearie, O.
 
There’s walth owre yon green lea-rig,
  My ain kind dearie, O;        10
There’s walth owre yon green lea-rig,
  My ain kind dearie, O;
It’s neither land, nor gowd, nor braws,
  Let them gang tapsie teerie, O;
It’s walth o’ peace, o’ love, and truth,        15
  My ain kind dearie, O.
