Burns Robert – Dainty Davie lyrics

Dainty Davie
(Robert Burns)
Meet me on the Warlock Knowe,
Dainty Davie, Dainty Davie!
There I'll spend the day wi' you,
My ain dear Dainty Davie.
Now rosy May comes in wi' flowers
To deck her gay, green-spreading bowers;
And now comes in the happy hours
To wander wi my Davie.
The crystal waters round us fa'
The merry birds are lovers a',
The scented breezes round us blaw
A wandering wi my Davie.
When purple morning starts the hare
To steal upon her early fare,
Then thro the dews I will repair
To meet my faithfu' Davie.
When day, expiring in the west,
The curtain draws o Nature's rest,
I flee to his arms I loe the best:
And that's my ain dear Davie!
This song is closely aligned with
"There Was A Lad" that is sung to
The same tune.
Tune:Dainty Davie (140)
