ROBIN SHURE IN HAIRST
(Robert Burns)

I gaed up to Dunse,
To warp a wab o' plaiden,
At his daddie's yet,
Wha met me but Robin!

ch. Robin shure in hairst,
I shure wi' him:
Fient a heuk had I,
Yet I stack by him.

Was na Robin bauId,
Tho' I was a cotter?
Play'd me sic a trick,
An me the Eller's dochter!

Robin promis'd me
A' my winter vittle:
Fient haet he had but three
Guse-feathers and a whittle!

DT Lyrics:

In Mudcat MIDIs:
Robin Redbriest's Testament (Malcolm notes: The DT file contains seven variants, several from Greig-Duncan, and will need to be re-visited later. For now, I have just the one tune, from Alfred Moffat's Fifty Traditional Scottish Nursery Rhymes (1933), where it is called Guid-day now, bonnie Robin, lad; midi made from notation in that book. Moffat's set is essentially a much-shortened form of example (1) , with chorus as specified in the file. )
