THE LAND O'THE LEAL.

TUNE-Hey, tuttie, taittie.
I'm wearing awa, Jean,
Like snaw when it's thaw, Jean;
I'm wearing awa, Jean,

To the land o' the leal.
There's nae sorrow there, Jean,
There's nae cauld there, Jean,
The day is aye fair, Jean,

In the land o' the leal.

Ye were aye leal and true, Jean,
Your task's ended now, Jean,
And I'll welcome you

To the land o' the leal.
Our bonny bairn's there, Jean,
She was baith guid and fair, Jean,
And we grudged her right sair

To the land o' the leal.

Then dry that tearfu' ee, Jean,
My soul langs to be free, Jean,
And angels wait on me

To the land o' the leal.
Now, fare ye well, my ain Jean,
This warld's care is vain, Jean,
We'll meet and aye be fain

In the land o' the leal.

THE BANKS OF DOON.

BURNS.

TUNE-Caledonian Hunt's delight. Ye banks and braes o’bonnie Doon,

How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair ? How can ye chant, ye little birds ?

And I sae weary fou o' care !
