SANDY AND JOCKIE

Robert Burns picked up the names of these characters from an old song and added the story in his own words.

 

Twa bony lads were Sandy and Jockie;

Jockie was lo'ed but Sandy unlucky;

Jockie was laird baith of hills and of vallies,

But Sandy was nought but the King o' gude fellows.

 

Jockie lo'ed Madgie, for Madgie had money,

And Sandy lo'ed Mary for Mary was bony:

Ane wedded for Love, ane wedded for treasure,

So Jockie had siller, and Sandy had pleasure.
