Afton Water music: Trad.? words: Robert Burns Flow gent ly sweet Af ton a mong thy green 4 3 4 3 braes, Flow gent ly, I'll sing thee a song in thy praise; My Ma ry's a sleep by thy mur mur ing stream, Flow gent ly, sweet Af ton, dis turb not her dream. Thou stock dove whose echo resounds thro' the glen, Ye wild whistling blackbirds in yon thorny den, Thou green crested lapwing thy screaming forbear, I charge you disturb not my slumbering Fair. How lofty, sweet Afton, thy neighbouring hills, Far mark'd with the courses of clear, winding rills; There daily I wander as noon rises high, My flocks and my Mary's sweet Cot in my eye. How pleasant thy banks and green vallies below, Where wild in the woodlands the primroses blow; There oft as mild ev'ning weeps over the lea, The sweet scented birk shades my Mary and me. Thy chrystal stream, Afton, how lovely it glides, And winds by the cot where my Mary resides; How wanton thy waters her snowy feet lave, As gathering sweet flowerets she stems thy clear wave. Flow gently, sweet Alton, among thy green braes, Flow gently, sweet River, the theme of my lays; My Mary's asleep by thy murmuring stream, Flow gently, sweet Afton, disturb not her dream. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
