Traditional Scottish Songs
- Loch Lomond
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomon' Where me and my true love were ever wont tae gae On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomon'
Oh you tak' the high road and I'll tak the low road An' I'll be in Scotland afore ye, But me and my true love will never meet again On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomon'
Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen.
On the steep, steep side of Ben Lomon', Where in purple hue, the hielan' hills we view, An' the moon comin' out in the gloamin'.
The wee birdies sing, and the wild flowers spring,
While in sunshine the waters are sleepin' But the broken heart it kens nae second spring again, Tho' the waefu' may cease free their greetin'.
