Glenlogie There's fifty young nobles rode up the King's hall, But bonnie Glenlogie's the flow'r of them all. Bonny Jean of Bethelnie came tripping down the stair And she's fall'n sick with Glenlogie above all that were there. She said to his footman that ran by his side O what is that man's name and where does he bide? He bides at Glenlogie when he is at home He's of the gay Gordons and John is his name Where will I get a bonnie boy to win horse and shoon To go to Glenlogie and bid him to come ? The first line that he read a low laugh gave he The next line that he read the tear blinded his eye O what a man am I or what is my make That such a fine lady should die for my sake ? O saddle me the black horse, o saddle me the brown O saddle me the swiftest horse that ever rode from town When he came to Bethelnie little mirth was there But bonnie Jean's mother was tearing her hair Bonnie Jean of Bethelnie lay pale and wan But red and ruddg grew she when Glenlogle came in O turn bonnie Jeannie, turn you on yaur slde For I'll be the bridegroom and you'll be the bride Child #238 From Seeds of Love, Sedley RG
