Sowld Nocht Allane Honorit Be.
Countless versions of this song exist. A Scottish poem with a similar theme, "
Sowld Nocht Allane Honorit Be", is included in the Bannatyne Manuscript of 1568 and English broadside versions from the 17th century are common. Robert Burns published his own version in 1782, and modern versions abound. Burns's version makes the tale somewhat mysterious and, although not the original, it became the model for most subsequent versions of the ballad.
In Scotland, news and opinion was circulated in the form of printed ballads which satirised the characters and actions of the leaders of the opposing parties. Lord Fleming's defence of Dumbarton for Mary was satirized in a ballad "The tressoun of Dumbertane", printed in Edinburgh by Robert Lekprevik in May 1570. The verses, attributed to Robert Sempill, describe Fleming's failed ambush of the English commander William Drury. Another ballad, an "Answeir to the Englisch Ballad", criticised Regent Mar, the Earl of Morton and colleagues for the rendition of the Earl of Northumberland to England after the Rising of the North;Thocht sum have playit Judas' pairt,
In selling gud Northumberland,
sould the whoill, for thair desert,
That faine wald have that fact withstand?
Or yit the countrey beir the blame?
Let thame that sauld him have the schame.
Mar, and the divelishe Douglassis,
And namelie, Morton and Lochlevin, (Robert Douglas of Lochleven)
Mackgill and Orknay, Scottisch assis, (Adam Bothwell, Bishop of Orkney))
And Cleisch quhom to the gold wes gevin, (Robert Colville, Laird of Cleish)
Dunfermling that the py prepaird, (Robert Pitcairn, Commendator of Dunfermline: "pie prepared" plotted)
And lowse Lindsay quho was his gaird,
These onlie wer the Judassis. The ballad accurately identified Robert Colville of Cleish as the principle broker for delivering Northumberland to Berwick and his subsequent execution.
