Subject: Lyr Add: POLWARTH ON THE GREEN (1788)

From The Scots Musical Museum, Volume 2 (Edinburgh: James Johnson, 1788), page 191:

[The tune is also given on that page.]


POLWART ON THE GREEN

At Polwart on the green,
If you'll meet me the morn,
Where lasses do convene,
To dance about the thorn;
A kindly welcome you shall meet,
Frae her wha likes to view,
A lover and a lad compleat,
The lad and lover you.

Let dorty dames say na,
As lang as e'er they please,
Seem caulder than the snaw,
While inwardly they bleeze;
But I will frankly shaw my mind,
And yield my heart to thee;
Be ever to the captive kind,
That langs nae to be free.

At Polwart on the green,
Among the new-mawn hay,
With sangs and dancing keen
We'll pass the heartsome day.
At night, if beds be o'er thrang laid,
And thou be twin'd of thine,
Thou shall be welcome, my dear lad,
To take a part of mine.

Why does the index say that there are 19 posts to this thread? -- I can only access 3.

For me, it just says 4 and has never gone any higher. Maybe there was a lot of spam which was rapidly removed.

The two versions linked from here are quite different. Burns changed a lot.
