CLVI. John Anderson
JOHN ANDERSON, my jo, John, 
  When we were first acquent, 
Your locks were like the raven, 
  Your bonnie brow was brent; 
But now your brow is beld, John,         5
  Your locks are like the snow; 
But blessings on your frosty pow, 
  John Anderson, my jo. 
John Anderson, my jo, John, 
  We clamb the hill thegither;  10
And mony a canty day, John, 
  We've had wi' ane anither: 
Now we maun totter down, John; 
  But hand in hand we'll go, 
And sleep thegither at the foot,  15
  John Anderson, my jo!
