268. Song—I Love my Love in Secret
 
 
MY Sandy gied to me a ring,
Was a’ beset wi’ diamonds fine;
But I gied him a far better thing,
I gied my heart in pledge o’ his ring.
 
Chorus.—My Sandy O, my Sandy O,        5
  My bonie, bonie Sandy O;
  Tho’ the love that I owe
  To thee I dare na show,
Yet I love my love in secret, my Sandy O.
 
My Sandy brak a piece o’ gowd,        10
While down his cheeks the saut tears row’d;
He took a hauf, and gied it to me,
And I’ll keep it till the hour I die.
  My Sand O, &c.
