"JOCK O' HAZELDEAN" sung by Jean Redpath:

Why weep ye by the tide, lady?
Why weep ye by the tide?
I'll wed ye tae my youngest son
And ye shall be his bride
And ye shall be his bride, lady
Sae comely tae be seen
But ay she loot the tears doon fa' for Jock o' Hazeldean

A chain of gold ye shall not lack nor braid to bind your hair
Nor mettled hound nor managed hawk, nor palfrey fresh and fair
But ye, the foremost o' them a' shall ride our forest queen
But ay she loot the tears doon fa' for Jock o' Hazeldean

Now let this wilfu' grief be done, and dry that cheek so pale
Young Frank is chief o' Errington and Lord o' Langley Dale
His step is first in peacefu' ha, his sword in battle keen
But ay she loot the tears doon fa' for Jock o' Hazeldean

The kirk was decked by morning tide and taper glimmered fair
The priest and bridegroom wait the bride and dame and knight were there
They socht her baith by bower and ha', the lady wasnae seen
She's ower the border and awa' wi' Jock o' Hazeldean
