Kitty Reid's House

Air - 'Country Bumpkin.'


Hech! hey! the mirth that was there,

The White Rose o' June

Air - 'Voice of Spring.'


Now the bricht sun, and the soft simmer showers,
Deck a' the woods and the gardens wi' flowers;
But bonny and sweet though the hale o' them be,

An' oh, that's the white rose, the white rose o' June,

That emblem dear I venture to wear;
But it blooms in my heart, and its white leaves I weet,
When alane in the gloamin' I wander to greet,
O'er the white rose, the white rose, the white rose o' June,
An' may
he
that should wear it come back again sune!
