Here is a Lass With a Golden Ring Here is a lass with a golden ring, Golden ring, golden ring; Here is a lass with a golden ring, So early in the morning. Gentle Johnie kissed her, Three times blessed her, Sent her a slice o' bread and butter, In a silver saucer. Who shall we send it to, Send it to, send it to; Who shall we send it to? To [Mrs Ritchie's] daughter. ________________________________________________________ Chambers PRS (1847), 256; (1870), 118, Montgomerie SNR 61 (no. 63). Cf.
