Margo Lyr Req: Original lyrics to some of Burns songs (13) Lyr Req: Original lyrics to some of Burn's songs 16 Feb 10

Howdy folks! Long time no post!

I am looking for a way to find some of the original lyrics to some of Burn's songs.

For example: Burn's song "Behold my Love" was originally "Believe me, if all those endearing young charms" which is a lovely song. I happen to like the original lyrics.

I love some of the melodies in the Burns songs, but I am having trouble coming up with the original lyrics. I would like to see them, as I might also like some of them better.

In particular I was hoping to find the original lyrics to what is known as "Dunkin Davison". The original tune is "Ye'll Aye Be Welcome Back Again".

Anyone know where to look? Thanks so much for any help!
