|: Here's a letter to you madam :||
Here's a letter from the Earl of the Wemyss
To be a suitor to you madam.
2. |: Say not so to me Richie :|
3. |: Take your word again madam :|
4. |: I'll lie below the dyke Richie :|
5. As they went up yon bonny hillside|
O but the sun was setting bonny
And four and twenty Englishmen
Came all to welcome Richie Storry.
6. |: So dearly as you loved me madam :|
7. |: But dearly as I loved you madam :|
8. And was your waiting man madam
