Highland Mary - Lyrics

Ye banks, and braes, and streams around
The castle o' Montgomery,
Green be your woods, and fair your flowers,
Your waters never drumlie!
It's there simmer first unfald her robes,
And there the langest tarry,
For there I took the last fareweel
O'my sweet Highland Mary.
Oh, my sweet Highland Mary.
How sweetly bloom'd the gay, green birk,
How rich the hawthorn's blossom;
As underneath their fragrant shade,
I held her to my bosom!
The golden hours, on angel wings,
Flew o'er me and my Dearie;
For as dear to me as light and life
Was my sweet Highland Mary.
Oh, my sweet Highland Mary
With mony a vow, and locked embrace,
Our parting was full tender;
And pledging aft to meet again,
We tore oursels asunder
But Oh, fell Death's untimely frost,
That nipt my Flower sae early!
Now green's the sod, and cauld's the clay,
That wraps my Highland Mary!
Oh, my sweet Highland Mary.
Oh pale, pale now, those rosy lips
I aft hae kiss'd sae fondly!
And clos'd for all that sparkling glance,
That dwalt on me sae kindly!
And mouldering now in silent dust,
The heart that loved me dearly!
But still within my bosom's core
Shall live my Highland Mary.
Oh, my sweet Highland Mary
And still within my bosom's core
Shall live my Highland Mary.
Oh, my sweet Highland Mary
