    Tune--"_Johnny M'Gill._"

    [We owe the air of this song to one Johnny M'Gill, a fiddler of
    Girvan, who bestowed his own name on it: and the song itself partly to
    Burns and partly to some unknown minstrel. They are both in the
    Museum.]

    I.

    O, Wilt thou go wi' me,
    Sweet Tibbie Dunbar?
    O, wilt thou go wi' me,
    Sweet Tibbie Dunbar?
    Wilt thou ride on a horse,
    Or be drawn in a car,
    Or walk by my side,
    O, sweet Tibbie Dunbar?

    II.

    I care na thy daddie,
    His lands and his money,
    I care na thy kindred,
    Sae high and sae lordly:
    But say thou wilt hae me
    For better for waur--
    And come in thy coatie,
    Sweet Tibbie Dunbar!
