THE BODIES O’ THE LYNE O’ SKENE.

Ye powers o’ rhyme gie me a lift
To string ‘thegither twa’r three line,
About some frien’s that I hae here
That’s lang been guid to me and mine:
Gie me the power to raise a lilt,
To show my thoughts and feelings keen,
Wi’ gratefu’ glee I fain wad sing,
The bodies o’ the Lyne o’ Skene.
Auld farran canty bodies,
Better never hae I seen;
Auld farran canty bodies,
Dwals into the Lyne o’ Skene.
