Thread Name: Origins: Old Scottish Lament / Fear a Bhata
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Old Scottish Lament / Fear a Bhata
I have a couple of additional verses:-

Broken hearted I droop and languish
My frequent tears show my boosum's anquish
Shall I expect thee tonight to cheer me
Or close the door sighing , sad and weary.

My friends oft tell me that I must sever
All thoughts of thee from my heart forever
Their words are idle, my passion swelling
Unbound as ocean can brook no quelling.

But I do leave the dying swan verse out.
