the BUSH ABOON TRAQUAIR 1811 Hear me, ye nymphs, and ev' ry swain, I'll tr tell how Peg gy grieves me; Tho' thus I lan guish and com plain, A las! she ne'er be lieves me. My vows and sighs, like si lent air, Un heed ed, ne ver move her; The bon ny bush a boon Tra quair, Was where I first did love her. 2. That day she smil'd, and made me glad, No maid seem'd ever kinder; I thought myself the luckiest lad, So sweetly there to find her. I try'd to soothe my am'rous flame, In words that I thought tender: If more there pass'd, I'm not to blame; I meant not to offend her. 3. Yet now she scornful flies the plain, The fields we then frequented; If e'er we meet, she shews disdain, She looks as ne'er acquainted. The bonny bush bloom'd fair in May; Its sweets I'll ay remember: But now her frowns make it decay; It fades as in December. 4. Ye rural pow'rs, who hear my strains, Why thus should Peggy grieve me? Oh! make her partner in my pains; Then let her smiles relieve me. If not, my love will turn despair; My passion no more tender; I'll leave the bush aboon Traquair; To lonely wilds I'll wander. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
