BONNIE BESSIE LOGAN.

O, BONNIE Bessie Logan

Is dainty, young, and fair;
The very wind that's blawin'.

It lingers in her hair.
Sae lichtsome is her footstep

As she comes o'er the lea ;
But bonnie Bessie Logan

Is owre young for me.

O, bonnie Bessie Logan,
The lads are at the stile,

Or half-way up the loanin'
To catch your winsome smile;

1 fain wad be amang them,
If sic a thing could be,

But bonnie Bessie Logan
Is owre young for me.

O, bonnie Bessie Logan,

I saw you late yestreen ;
A rose was on your bosom,

And love was in your een.
I doot the lad that pu'd it

Is sure to win his plea,
For bonnie Bessie Logan
