On Miss Jean Scott

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

O, had each Scot of ancient times
Been, Jeanie Scott, as thou art,
The bravest heart on English ground
Had yielded like a coward.

 

O, had each Scot of ancient times
Been, Jeanie Scott, as you are,
The bravest heart on English ground
Had yielded like a coward.
