Bonnie Laddie Ye Gang By Me

  • Trad

    It happened on a day in the merry month of May
    I gaed oot tae meet my bonnie lad, he promised tae come away
    I gaed oot tae meet my bonnie lad, he promised tae come away
    But my bonnie laddie never yet cam by me

    Oh whit hae I said, love, and whit hae I done
    And whit objections tae me hae ye found
    Or hae ye gane a-courting anither pretty maid
    Is that the reason, laddie, ye gang by me

    Oh naething hae ye said, lass, and naething hae ye done
    And nae objection tae ye hae I found
    But I hae gane a-courting anither pretty maid
    Aye and that's the reason, lassie, I gang by ye

    Oh ye micht hae courted six and ye micht hae courted seven
    Ye micht hae courted eight, nine, ten or eleven
    Ye micht hae courted dozens ever and ever again
    But been kinder tae yer old love for a' that

    Oh the hills they are high and the leaves they are green
    And many is the happy nicht that you and I hae seen
    But there's anither lassie a-dancing in the sheen
    And sae neatly, bonnie laddie, ye gang by me

    Oh the hills they are high but the leaves are nae rottan
    Although my love has left me I'm no' hairtborken
    For I'll court anither lad, aye, and you'll soon be forgotten
    Then sae neatly, bonnie laddie, I'll gang by ye

    As sung by Heather Heywood
