Bonnie George Campbell


High upon Hielands and low upon Tay
Bonnie George Campbell rode oot on a day
Saddled and bridled, sae bonnie rode he
Hame cam' his guid horse, but never came he

Saddled and booted and bridled rode he
A plume tae his helmet, a sword at his knee
But toom came his saddled and bluidy tae see
Hame cam' his guid horse, but never came he

Doon cam' his auld mither greetin' fu' sair
Oot cam' his bonnie wife rivin' her hair
"My meadows lie green and by corn is unshorn
My barn it tae build and my baby's unborn"

High upon Hielands and low upon Tay
Bonnie George Campbell rode oot on a day
Saddled and bridled, sae bonnie rode he
Hame cam' his guid horse, but never came he.
