  • (Trad)

    Bonnie Bessie Logan is handsome, young and fair
    And ach the very wind that blaws it lingers in her hair
    She's lithsome, lang and lily as she comes o'er the lee
    But Bonnie Bessie Logan is o'er young for me

    Bonnie Bessie Logan, the lads all lo'e her style
    And a' act fool afore her tae gain her winning smile
    I fain wad be amang them but ach that canna be
    For Bonnie Bessie Logan is o'er young for me

    Bonnie Bessie Logan as braw as ever seen
    The rose was in her bosom and the love-light in her een
    And ach the lad that pu's the rose must surely happy be
    For Bonnie Bessie Logan is o'er young for me

    Bonnie Bessie Logan has sto'en my hairt awa
    And when I think upon her the tears doon saftly fa'
    For noo will I be wishin' until the day I dee
    Aye Bonnie Bessie Logan was o'er young for me

    (as sung by Alex Campbell)

  • [1977:] Learnt from the Minor Birds in Warrington. I added a fourth verse only to learn about a year later when doing a TV show with Ian Campbell that his father Davy, sings a five verse version of the song. (Notes Alex Campbell, 'Traditional Ballads of Scotland')
