Doonie Burn.

Doonie Burn (Words and music D. Gilfillan)

Chorus

Where Donnie burn brak’s o’re the lee

Where it’s waters run baith clear and free

Ti’s there I wish and lang tae be

With my Ain true love who waits for me

.

We saw the small birds on the wing

And heard them joyfully sing

As they called in the days of spring

The morning air did ring

.

Was there I spent such happy hour

With you my fairest flo’er

The lang warm summer days o’ grace

We spent in loves sweet embrace

.

I rue the day I kissed your hand 

And left your fathers land

I vowed my fortune I would find

Marched of to war sae young sae blind

.

I fought wi ah the courage true

So I’d return to you

But I fell amidst the battles roar

On Flodden’s field of blood and gore

.

Our times have past but there’s times tae come

There’s things that will be done

It is by the lords own decree

I cannot spend that time with thee
