Loch Lomond

By yon bonnie banks and by and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae,
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

O, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye
For me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

O weel may I weep for yestreen in my sleep
we lay bride and bridegroom together.
But his touch and his breath were cold as the death,
And his hairtsblood ran red in the heather.

As dauntless in battle as tender in love
Hed yield neer a foot tae the foeman
But never again frae the fields o the slain
Tae his Moira will he come by Loch Lomond


The thistle may bloom, the king hae his ain,
And fond lovers will meet in the gloamin
And me and my true love will yet meet again
Far above the bonnie banks o Loch Lomond
