Traditional Scottish Songs
- I Know Where I'm Going

Here is a song about a girl who knows what she wants - "handsome winsome Johnny!"

I Know Where I'm Going

I know where I'm going,
And I know who's going with me.
I know who I love,
And my dear knows who I'll marry.

I have stockings of silk,
And shoes of bright green leather,
Combs to buckle my hair,
And a ring for every finger.

O' feather beds are soft,
And painted rooms are bonnie,
But I would give them all,
For my handsome winsome Johnny.

Some say that he's poor,
But I say that he's bonnie,
Fairest of them all,
Is my handsome, winsome, Johnny.
