Item Description To Ane Far Awa' [away] - verses two and three of William Carnie's words, presumably in his hand; verse 2: 'Tis years, O langsome years, Tom, Since I last saw your face; And sometimes I hae [have] fears, Tom, Anither [another] fills my place. But, hap[pen] what will, or come what may, I'll ne'er forget, or blame the day[,] I promised to be thine for aye [ever], For thine I hope to be, Tom. Verse 3: Ye'll read this simple sang, Tom, In yer hame across the sea; And ye'll ken [know] I'm thinkin' lang, Tom, to look again on thee: - To hear yer kindly voice ance [once] mair [more, To hear ye praise my face and hair, To hear ye say that nane shall share Yer heart and hame but me, Tom.
