the BROOM OF COWDENKNOWS 1806 How blythe was I each morn to see My swain come o'er the hill! He tr leap'd the burn, and flew to me, I tr tr met him wi' good will. O, the broom, the bon ny bon ny broom, The broom of the Cow den knows! I wish I were wi' tr my dear swain, Wi' his pipe and my ewes. tr 2. I neither wanted ewe nor lamb, While his flocks near me lay; He gather'd in my sheep at night, And cheer'd me a' the day. O, the broom, &c. 3. He tun'd his pipe and reed sae sweet, The birds stood list'ning by; Ev'n the dull cattle stood and gaz'd, Charm'd wi' his melody. O, the broom, &c. 4. While thus we spent our time, by turns Betwixt our flocks and play, I envy'd not the fairest dame, Though e'er sae rich and gay. O, the broom, &c. 5. Hard fate! that I should banish'd be, Gang heavily, and mourn, Because I lov'd the kindest swain That ever yet was born. O, the broom, &c. 6. He did oblige me ev'ry hour; Could I but faithfu' be? He staw my heart; could I refuse Whate'er he ask*d of me. O, the broom,, &c. 7. My doggie, and my little kit, That held my wee soup whey, My plaidy, broach, and crooked stick, Maun now lie useless by. O, the broom, &c. 8. Adieu, ye Cowdenknows, adieu! Fareweel a' pleasures there! Ye gods, restore me to my swain, It's a' I crave or care. O, the broom, &c. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
