On James Grieve, Laird Of Boghead, Tarbolton

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Here lies Boghead amang the dead
In hopes to get salvation;
But if such as he in Heav'n may be,
Then welcome - hail! damnation.

 

Here lies Boghead among the dead
In hopes to get salvation;
But if such as he in Heaven may be,
Then welcome - hail! damnation.
