Subject: Loch Lomond lyrics
From: trevek
Date: 31 Oct 08 - 07:02 AM

I rcently hear The Corries, version of Loch Lomond, which contains different lyrics from the standard version ("By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonny braes")

The Corries version is more obviously about a dead jacobite and his love.

Does anyone have any idea of the age of this lyric; Is it old or modern? Which lyric is older? Author?

O wither away my bonnie May (which direction)
Sae late an' sae far in the gloamin' (so far in the dusk)
The mist gather grey o'er moorland and brae (hill)
O wither sae far are ye roamin'?

Chorus:
O ye'll tak the high road an' I'll tak the low
I'll be in Scotland afore ye
For me and my true love will never meet again
By the bonnie bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond

I trusted my ain love last night in the broom (own) (bush)
My Donald wha' loves me sae dearly
For the morrow he will march for Edinburgh toon (town)
Tae fecht for his King and Prince Charlie (to fight)

O well may I weep for yestreen in my sleep (well) (yesterday)
we stood bride and bridegroom together
But his arms and his breath were as cold as the death
And his heart's blood ran red in the heather

(chorus)

As dauntless in battle as tender in love
He'd yield ne'er a foor toe the foeman (enemy)
But never again frae the field o' the slain (from)
Tae his Moira will he come by Loch Lomond

The thistle may bloom, the King hae his ain (have his own)
And fond lovers may meet in the gloamin'
And me and my true love will yet meet again
Far above the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

(chorus)
