CA' the yowes to the knowes,
Ca' them where the heather grows,
Ca' them where the burnie rowes,
My bonie Dearie.
Hark the mavis' evening sang
Sounding Clouden's woods amang;
Then a faulding let us gang,
My bonie Dearie.
Ca' the &c.
We'll gae down by Clouden side
Through the hazels, spreading wide
O'er the waves, that sweetly glide
To the moon sae clearly.
Ca' the &c.
Yonder Clouden's silent towers,
Where, at moonshine's midnight hours
O'er the dewy bending flowers
Fairies dance sae cheery.
Ca' the &c.
Ghaist nor bogle shalt thou fear,;
Thou'rt to Love and Heaven sae dear,
Nocht of Ill may come thee near,
My bonie Dearie.
Ca' the &c.
Fair and lovely as thou art,
Thou hast stown my very heart;
I can die--------but canna part,
My bonie Dearie.
Ca' the &c.
