Jockie Tam an' Jockie Till 1. Jockie Tam an' Jockie Till Went a-walkin' owre the hill; There they fund a bonnie yowe, Siller ribbons on her pow; "Guid e'en tae ye, bonnie men! Seek ye but an' seek ye ben; I hae tint ma lammie fine, She's no here sin' denner-time." "We hae seen her, in the fog, Chaset by a muckle dog; She is fa'n intae a moss, Haste ye, yowie, or she'll be lost." 2. Jock Tam an' Jock Wull They went walkin' owre the hill; There they fand a bonnie coo, Siller ribbons on its mou; "Guid day, ma braw gentlemen! Seek ye but, or seek ye ben? I hae lost ma cauf sae fine, He's no been here since denner-time." "We hae seen him in the girse, He's fa'n doon upon his erse, There he lies in a great moss, Haste ye, crummy, or he'll be lost." _______________________________________________________ Coll. by M.S.; (1) from Fife, c. 1960; (2) from Perthshire, but coll.
