Heilan Mary     by: Robinson, Roxanna

Source: Highland Mary- Thomas Faed

Heilan Mary, Heilan Mary,
Sittin on a rock.
Her face is grace,
And sae is her frock
As the burnie trickles by.

Heilan Mary, Heilan Mary
Bonnie in her claes
The stream is caul
An affa clean
As she dips in her taes.

Heilan Mary, Heilan Mary,
Waitin on her lovin lad
It’s Robert Burns, Scotlan’s poet
Wha broke the lassie’s hert
An left her affa sad.
