Chanticleer – Loch Lomond lyrics

By yon bonnie banks, and by you bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond.
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks, O Loch Lomond.

O ye'll take the High Road,
And I'll take the Low Road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye.
But me and me true love
Will ne'er meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks O Loch Lomond.

'Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen.
By the steep steep sides of Ben Lomond.
Where deep in purple hue, the highland hills we view.
And the Moon coming out in the gloamin'.


The wee birdies sing and the wildflowers spring.
And in sunshine the waters lie sleeping.
But the broken heart it kens nae second spring again.
And the world knows not how we are grieving.
