Lyrics

Oh there were two sisters lived in a bower
Oh I am so bonnie
They've gone out for to pull all the flowers
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

And they've not pulled a flower but one
Oh I am so bonnie
Till by there came an outlaw man
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

And he's taken the eldest by her hand
Oh I am so bonnie
Turned her around and he made her stand
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

And it's will you be a bankrobber's wife?
Oh I am so bonnie
Or will you die with my little pen knife?
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

Oh I'll not be a bankrobber's wife
Oh I am so bonnie
But I'd sooner die with your little pen knife
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

So he's taken the second girl by her hand
Oh I am so bonnie
Turned her around and he made her stand
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

Oh will you be a bankrobber's wife?
Oh I am so bonnie
Or will you die with my little pen knife?
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

Oh it's I'll not be a bankrobber's wife
Oh I am so bonnie
But I'd sooner die with your little pen knife
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

But her own brother John come riding by
Oh I am so bonnie
And this bold robber he chanced to spy
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

And he's gone up to his sister fair
Oh I am so bonnie
Taken her up by her long yellow hair
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

And he's sent out his page-boys three
Oh I am so bonnie
They took this robber most speedily
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

And it's for my sister that you shall die
Oh I am so bonnie
They've hanged him up on the gallows high
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie

They'd thrown him into a poisoned lake
Oh I am so bonnie
To feed all the toads and the rattle-snakes
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Fordie
