Lyrics

By yon bonnie banks 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

Oh, ye'll tak' the high road an' I'll tak' 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

We'll meet where we parted in yon shady glen
On the steep steep side of Ben Lomond
Where in purple hue the hielands we view
And the moon looks out frae the gloamin'

Oh, ye'll tak' the high road an' I'll tak' 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

Still fair is the scene but ah how changed
Are the hopes that we fondly cherished
Like a wat'ry gleam like a morning dream
On Cullodens field they ha'e perrished

Oh, ye'll tak' the high road an' I'll tak' 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

The wild flowers spring and the wee birds sing
And in sunshine the waters are sleepin'
But the broken heart a kens nae second spring
And resign'd we may be tho' we're greetin'

Oh, ye'll tak' the high road an' I'll tak' 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
