Alloway: the auld Brig o'Doon
Alloway: the auld Brig o'Doon
The Brig o'Doon is, of course famous as the place where Tam o'Shanter and his horse Meg escaped the witch Nannie in Robert Burns' poem.

Now, do thy speedy utmost, Meg,
And win the key-stane o' the brig;
There at them thou thy tail may toss,
A running stream they dare na cross.
But ere the key-stane she could make,
The fient a tail she had to shake!
For Nannie, far before the rest,
Hard upon noble Maggie prest,
And flew at Tam wi' furious ettle;
But little wist she Maggie's mettle -
Ae spring brought off her master hale,
But left behind her ain gray tail;
The carlin claught her by the rump,
And left poor Maggie scarce a stump.
