The murmur of the mourning ghostA
That keeps the shadowy kineB
'O Keith of RavelstonB
The sorrows of thy line 'C
-
Ravelston RavelstonB
The merry path that leadsD
Down the golden morning hillE
And thro' the silver meadsD
-
Ravelston RavelstonB
The stile beneath the treeF
The maid that kept her mother's kineB
The song that sang sheF
-
She sang her song she kept her kineB
She sat beneath the thornB
When Andrew Keith of RavelstonB
Rode thro' the Monday mornB
-
His henchman sing his hawk bells ringG
His belted jewels shineB
O Keith of RavelstonB
The sorrows of thy lineB
-
Year after year where Andrew cameH
Comes evening down the gladeI
And still there sits a moonshine ghostA
Where sat the sunshine maidI
-
Her misty hair is faint and fairJ
She keeps the shadowy kineB
O Keith of RavelstonB
The sorrows of thy lineB
-
I lay my hand upon the stileK
The stile is lone and coldL
The burnie that goes babbling byM
Says naught that can be toldL
-
Yet stranger here from year to yearN
She keeps her shadowy kineB
O Keith of RavelstonB
The sorrows of thy lineB
-
Step out three steps where Andrew stoodO
Why blanch thy cheeks for fearN
The ancient stile is not aloneB
'Tis not the burn I hearP
-
She makes her immemorial moanB
She keeps her shadowy kineB
O Keith of RavelstonB
The sorrows of thy lineB
