O’er The Water Tae Charlie. Trad.

O’er The Water Tae Charlie.  Trad. 

Come boat me o’er, come row me o’er

Come boat me o’er to Charlie

I’ll gie John Ross another bawbee

Tae ferry me o’er to Charlie

Chorus.

We’ll o’er the water, we’ll o’er the sea

We’ll o’er the water to Charlie

Come weel, come woe, we’ll gather and go

And live or die wi Charlie

I swear by moon and stars so bright

And sun that glances early

If I had twenty thousand lives

I’d gie them a’ for Charlie

We’ll o’er the water, we’ll o’er the sea

We’ll o’er the water to Charlie

Come weel, come woe, we’ll gather and go

And live or die wi Charlie

Aince I had sons but now I hae nane

I bred them toiling sairly

And I would bear them a’ again

And lose them a’ for Charlie

We’ll o’er the water, we’ll o’er the sea

We’ll o’er the water to Charlie

Come weel, come woe, we’ll gather and go

And live or die wi Charlie
