“Adieu to Bogie Side”


The singer calls on the muses to help him "sing sweet Huntly's praise. I leave a girl behind me Whose joy is all my pride, And bid farewell to Huntly And adieu to Bogie side." He bids farewell to friends and lands and hopes the girl will be safe


For the complicated relationship between this song and "Bogie's Bonnie Bell," see the notes to that song. - RBW
