Highland Mary     by: Fraser, Kate

Source: Highland Mary - Thomas Faed

Highland Mary wis a bonnie lass
An she niver made ony fuss
She hid rosy-reid chikks
An een sae broon
She niver like the fash an steer o the toon
Insteid she sat dookin her feet in the watter
In a bubblin burn
Gey near her hoose.

She hid nae sheen did Highland Mary
Insteid she hid her chairms.
Alas, she dee'd at 21
An thon's fin her days war finally deen
She left ahin puir Rabbie Burns
Fa grat alane amang the ferns.
