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,
     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;
     Then a' 'twad gie o' joy to me,—
     The sharin't with Montgomerie's Peggy.
