Song-My Hoggie

      What will I do gin my Hoggie die?      My joy, my pride, my Hoggie!      My only beast, I had nae mae,      And vow but I was vogie!      The lee-lang night we watch'd the fauld,      Me and my faithfu' doggie;      We heard nocht but the roaring linn,      Amang the braes sae scroggie.       But the houlet cry'd frau the castle wa',      The blitter frae the boggie;      The tod reply'd upon the hill,      I trembled for my Hoggie.      When day did daw, and cocks did craw,      The morning it was foggie;      An unco tyke, lap o'er the dyke,      And maist has kill'd my Hoggie!
