Bonnie Leslie


Oh so you, bonnie Leslie,
As she gain out o'er the boarder
She's gone like Alexander
To spread her conquests further

Oh to see her is to love her
And to love, but her forever
For nature made her what she is
And ne'er made such another

The Devil, he could never scathe thee
Nor aught, that would belong thee
He'd look into thy bonny face
And say I can not wrong thee

The powers above will tend thee
So misfortune shall not steer thee
Thou like themselves, so lovely
That ill, they'll ne'er let near thee

Return again, oh bonny Leslie
Return again to Caledonia
That we may brag we have a lass
There none been e'er so bonny

Oh so you, bonnie Leslie,
As she gain out o'er the boarder
She's gone like Alexander
To spread her conquests further
