Jock O'Hazeldean

Traditional - Scots; www.bartleby.com (Harvard Classics Vol. 41) says that Sir Walter Scott wrote the words

 

I must have learned this in the 1960s, when I started hanging out with other folksingers.?I hear it in a lowland Scots dialect, and sometimes sing it that way ?I heard it sung a number of different ways here in the States.

"Why weep ye by the tide, lady

Why weep ye by the tide?

I'll wed ye to my youngest son

And ye shall be his bride

牋牋牋牋牋?And ye shall be his bride, lady

牋牋牋牋牋?So comely to be seen"

牋牋牋牋牋?But aye she's let the tears downfall

牋牋牋牋牋?For Jock O'Hazeldean

 

"Now let this willful grief be done

And dry your cheek so pale

Young Frank is chief of Errington

And Lord of Langleydale

牋牋牋牋牋?His step is first in peaceful hall

牋牋牋牋牋?His sword in battle keen"

牋牋牋牋牋?But aye she's let the tears downfall

牋牋牋牋牋?For Jock O'Hazeldean

 

"A gown o' gold ye shall not lack

Nor braid to bind your hair

Nor mettled hound nor managed hawk

Nor palfrey fresh and fair

牋牋牋牋牋?And ye the foremost of them all

牋牋牋牋牋?Shall ride, our forest queen"?

牋牋牋牋牋?But aye she's let the tears downfall

牋牋牋牋牋?For Jock O'Haeldean

 

The kirk* was decked at morning tide

The tapers glimmered fair

The priest and bridegroom wait the bride

And dame knight are there

牋牋牋牋牋?They've sought her both by tower and hall

牋牋牋牋牋?The lady was not seen

牋牋牋牋牋?She's o'er the border and awa ?/span>
