The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
8. Song—Montgomerie’s Peggy
 
 
Tune—“Galla Water.”
 
 
ALTHO’ my bed were in yon muir,
  Amang the heather, in my plaidie;
Yet happy, happy would I be,
  Had I my dear Montgomerie’s Peggy.
 
When o’er the hill beat surly storms,        5
  And winter nights were dark and rainy;
I’d seek some dell, and in my arms
  I’d shelter dear Montgomerie’s Peggy.
 
Were I a baron proud and high,
  And horse and servants waiting ready;        10
Then a’ ’twad gie o’ joy to me,—
  The sharin’t with Montgomerie’s Peggy.
