O where hae ye been, Lord Randal, my son ?
O where hae ye been, my handsome young man ?”

Kemp Owyne

Her mother died when she was young,
Which gave

her cause to make great moan;
Her father married the warst woman

That ever lived in Christendom.

5

She served her with foot and hand,

In every thing that she could dee,
Till once, in an unlucky time,

She threw her in ower Craigy's sea.

Now Robin he is to fair Kirkly gone,

As fast as he can win;
But before he came there, as we do hear,
He was taken

very

ill.

15

And when he came to fair Kirkly-hall,

He knockd all at the ring,
But none was so ready as his cousin herself

For to let bold Robin in.

20

“Will you please to sit down, cousin Robin,” she said,

And drink some beer with me?“No, I will neither eat nor drink,

Till I am blooded by thee.”

Well, I have a room, cousin Robin,” she said,

Which you did never see,
And if you please to walk therein,

You blooded by me shall be.”
