Fairest Maid On Devon Banks

Tune-'Rothiemurchie."

      Chorus-Fairest maid on Devon banks,      Crystal Devon, winding Devon,      Wilt thou lay that frown aside,      And smile as thou wert wont to do?       Full well thou know'st I love thee dear,      Couldst thou to malice lend an ear!      O did not Love exclaim: "Forbear,      Nor use a faithful lover so."      Fairest maid, &c.       Then come, thou fairest of the fair,      Those wonted smiles, O let me share;      And by thy beauteous self I swear,      No love but thine my heart shall know.      Fairest maid, &c.
