As I Went by the Luckenbooths

Melody -

As I went by the Luckenbooths
I saw a lady fair.
She had long pendles in her ears,
And jewels in her hair.
And when she cam' to our door
She speired at wha was ben,
"Oh, hae ye seen my lost love
Wi' his braw Hieland men?"
2. The smile about her bonnie cheek
Was sweeter than the bee;
Her voice was like the birdie's sang
Upon the birken tree.
But when the meenister cam' out
Her mare began to prance,
Then rade into the sunset
Beyond the coast of France.
