463. Song—The Highland Balou
 
 
HEE balou, my sweet wee Donald,
Picture o’ the great Clanronald;
Brawlie kens our wanton Chief
Wha gat my young Highland thief.
 
Leeze me on thy bonie craigie,        5
An’ thou live, thou’ll steal a naigie,
Travel the country thro’ and thro’,
And bring hame a Carlisle cow.
 
Thro’ the Lawlands, o’er the Border,
Weel, my babie, may thou furder!        10
Herry the louns o’ the laigh Countrie,
Syne to the Highlands hame to me.
