W:But, me and my true love will never meet a-gain, W:On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. W: W:2 W:We'll meet where we parted in yon shady glen, W:On the steep steep side o'Ben Lomond, W:When in purple hue the highland hills we view W:And the moon coming over the gloamin. W: W: W:3 W:Still fair is the scene, but, ah, how changed W:Are the hopes that we fondly cherished. W:Like a wat'ry gleam, like a morning dream, W:On Culloden's field they hae perished. W: W:4 W:The wild flowers spring, and the wee birdies sing, W:And in sunshine the waters are sleepin'. W:But, the broken heart it knows no second spring, W:An' resigned we may be tho' we're greetin'. % % % % %
