Bonnie Lass O’ Gala Water. (Trad)

Bonnie lass o’ Gala Water
Braw braw lass o’ Gala Water
I would range the mountains sae deep
Wi’ you bonnie lass o’ Gala Water

Sae fair her hair, sae brent her brow
Sae bonnie blue her een and cheerie
Oh I would go the length o’ the Isle
Tae get back home wi’ my dearie

O’er yonder moor, o’er yonder mountain
O’er yon bonnie hills taegither
O I would range the mountains o’ time
My own bonnie lass tae forgather

Lords and lairds came here tae woo
And gentlemen wi’ sword and dagger
But the black eyed lass o’ Galashiels
Would hae nane but the gree o’ Gala Water
