LYRICS

Ye banks and braes of bonnie Doon
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant ye little birds
While I sae weary, fu’ o’ care?

Ye’ll break my heart, ye warbling birds
That wanton through the flowery thorn
Ye mind me o’ departed joys
Departed never to return
Oft hae I roved by bonnie Doon,
To see the rose and woodbine twine
And ilka bird sang o’ all its joy
And fondly sae did I o’ mine
Wi’ lithesome heart I pulled a rose
Full sweet upon its thorny tree
And my fause lover staw my rose
But ah! he left the thorn wi’ me
