Annie laurie: to agnieszka

Maxwellton braes are bonnies where early fa's the dew
And it's there that annie laurie gied me her promise true
Gied me her promise true which n'er forgot shall be
And for bonnie annie laurie I'd lay me down an' dee
Her brow is like the snawdrift ner neck is like the swan
Her face is the fairest that e'er the sun shone on
That e'er e'er the sun shone on and dark blue is her e'e
And for bonnie annie laurie I'd lay me down and dee
Like dew on the gowan lyin' is the fa' of her fairy feet
And like winds in summer sighin' her voice is low and sweet
Her voice is low and sweet and she's a' the worls tae me
And for bonnie annie laurie I'd lay me down and dee
And for bonnie annie laurie I'd lay me down and dee
