Roamin In The Gloamin
Sir H. Lauder


I've seen lots of bonnie lassies trav'llin' far and wide,
But my heart is centred noo on bonnie Kate McBride;
And altho' I'm no a chap that throws a word away,
I'm surprised mysel' sometimes at a' I've got to say.

Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonnie banks o' Clyde,
Roamin' in the gloamin' wi' ma lassie by my side,
When the sun has gone to rest,
That's the time that we love best,
O it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin'!

One nicht in the gloamin' we were trippin' side by side,
Kissed her twice, and asked her once if she would be my bride,
She was shy, so was I, we were baith the same,
But I got brave and braver on the journey comin' hame.

Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonnie banks o' Clyde,
Roamin' in the gloamin' wi' ma lassie by my side,
When the sun has gone to rest,
That's the time that we love best,
O it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin'!

Last nicht efter strollin' we got hame at half-past nine.
Sittin' at the kitchen fire I asked her to be mine.
When she promised, I got up and danced the Hielan' Fling
I've just been to the jew'llers and I've picked a nice wee ring.

Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonnie banks o' Clyde,
Roamin' in the gloamin' wi' ma lassie by my side,
When the sun has gone to rest,
That's the time that we love best,
O it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin'!

(Spoken)
Wait till I show you this nice wee ring!
(Searches pockets) Surely I haven't lost it!
No! here it is. Man, when I think on sittin' at the fire last nicht,
and listening to the kettle singin'...

Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonnie banks o' Clyde,
Roamin' in the gloamin' wi' ma lassie by my side,
When the sun has gone to rest,
That's the time that we love best,
O it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin'!
