Traditional
  1. Maxwelton' braes are bonny
    Where early falls the dew,
    And it's there that Annie Laurie
    Gi'ed me her promise true.
    Gi'ed me her promise true,
    Which ne'er forgot will be,
    And for bonny Annie Laurie,
    I'd lay me doon and dee.
  2. Her brow is like the snowdrift,
    Her neck is like the swan,
    Her face it is the fairest
    That e'er the sun shone on.
    That e'er the sun shone on,
    And dark blue is her e'e;
    And for bonny Annie Laurie,
    I'd lay me doon and dee.
  3. Like dew on the gowan lying,
    Is the fa' o her fairy feet,
    And like winds in summer sighing,
    Her voice is low and sweet.
    Her voice is low and sweet,
    And she's a' the world to me;
    And for bonny Annie Laurie,
    I'd lay me doon and dee.
