Silver Tassie

Gae fetch to me a pint o wine,
And fill it in a silver tassie;
That I may drink, before I go,
A service to my bonnie lassie.

The boat rocks at the Pier o' Leith,
Fu' loud the wind blaws frae the Ferry,
The ship rides by the Berwick-law,
And I maun leave my bonnie Mary.

The trumpets sound and the banners fly,
The glittering spears are ranked ready,
The shouts o' war are heard afar,
The battle closes deep and bloody.

It's not the roar o' sea or shore,
That maks me langer wish to tarry;
Nor shouts o' war that's heard afar-
It's leaving thee, my bonny Mary!
