Carolina Oliphant, (Lady Nairne), 1766-1845
O! the auld hoose, the auld hoose,|
What tho' the rooms were wee,
O, kind hearts were dwelling there,
And bairnies fu' O' glee.
And wild rose and the jassamine
Still hang upon the wa
Hoo mony cherished memories
Do they sweet flow'rs reca'.
2. O, the auld Laird, the auld Laird
3. The mavis still doth sweetly sing,|
The bluebells sweetly blaw.
The bonnie Earn's clear winding still,
But the auld hoose is awa'.
The auld hoose, the auld hoose
Deserted tho' ye be,
There ne'er can be a new hoose,
Will seem sae fair to me.
4. Still flourishing the auld pear tree
