  1. By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie brae,
    Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
    Where me and my true love were ever want to gae,
    By the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
    Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,
    And I'll be in Scotland afore ye,
    But me and my true love will never meet again,
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
  2. 'Twas there we parted,in yon shady glen,
    On the steep, steep side of Loch Lomond,
    Where all purple-hued, the Hieland hills we viewed
    And the moon coming out in her glory.
    Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,
    And I'll be in Scotland afore ye,
    But me and my true love will never meet again,
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
  3. The wee birdies sing and the wild flowers spring,
    And in sunshine the waters are sleeping,
    But the heart when it breaks, nae joy in summer takes
    Though the waefu' may cease frae their greeting.
    Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,
    And I'll be in Scotland afore ye,
    But me and my true love will never meet again,
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
