the BROOM OF COWDENKNOWS SECOND SET 1806 When sum mer comes, the swains on Tweed Sing their suc sess ful loves; A round the ewes and lamb kins feed, And mu sic fills the groves. But my lov'd song is then the broom, So fair on Cow den knows, For sure so soft, so 3 3 sweet a bloom, Else where there ne ver grows. O, the broom, the bon ny bon ny broom, The broom on Cow den knows; For sure so soft, so 3 3 sweet a bloom, Else where there ne ver grows. 2. There Colin tun'd his oaten reed, And won my yeilding heart; No shephere e'er that dwelt on Tweed, Could play with half such art. He sung of Tay, of Forth, and Clyde, The hills and dales around, Of Leader-haughs and Leader-side; Oh! how I blest the sound! O, the broom, &c. 3. Not Tiviot braes, so green and gay, May with this broom compare; Not Yarrow banks, in flow'ry May, Nor the bush aboon Traquair. More pleasing far are Cowdenknows, My peaceful happy home, Where I was wont to milk my ewes, At eve, among the broom. O, the broom, &c. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
