- THE young Maclean is brisk and bauld,
The young Maclean is rash an ready,
An he is to the Lowlands gane,
To steal awa a bonnie ladye.
- Out an spak her auld father,
An O! but he spak wondrous angry;
'Ye may steal my cows an ewes,
But ye shall not steal my dochter Peggie.'
- 'O haud your tongue, ye gude auld man,
For I hae gear enough already;
I cum na for your cows an ewes,
But I cum for your dochter Peggie.'
- He set her on a milk-white steed,
Himsel upon a gude gray naggie,
An they are to the Highlands gane,
The young Maclean an his bonnie ladye.
