Iain Thomson: lyrics of Loch Lomond


By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,

The sun shines bright on Loch Lomond

Me and my true love will never meet again,

On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.


You'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,

I'll be in Scotland afore ye.

Me and my true love will never meet again,

On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.


Wherever I wander and wherever I remain

The steep, steep side o' Ben Lomond.

Where in the purple hue, o’er the hieland hills we view,

And the moon comin' oot o’ the gloamin'.


You'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,

I'll be in Scotland afore ye.

Me and my true love will never meet again,

On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.


The wee birdies sing and the wild flowers spring,

And in sunshine the waters are sleeping:

But the broken heart, oh it kens nae second spring,

Tho' the waefu' may cease from their greeting.
