Duke of Gordon's three daughters  (1870-1885) 
Jem of Aberdeen

Dated from the Scottish Book Trade Index and external evidence.


The tuneful laverocks cheer the grove,
And sweetly smiles the summer green;
Now o'er the mead I love to rove
Wi' bonny Jem of Aberdeen.

Whene'er we sit beneath the broom,
Or wander o'er the flowery lea,
He's always wooing, wooing, wooing,
O Jamie's always wooing me.

He's fresh and fair as flowers in May,
The blythest led on a' the green;
How sweet the time will pass away
Wi' bonny Jem of Aberdeen!

Wi' joy I leave my father's cot,
Wi' ilka sport, of glen or green,
Well pleased to share the humble lot
Of bonny Jem of Aberdeen.
