BRAW LADS ON YARROW BRAES 1806 Braw, braw lads on Yar row braes, Ye wan der thro' the bloom ing hea ther; But Yar row braes, nor Et trick shaws, Can match the lads on Gall la Wa ter. 2. But there is ane, a secret ane, Aboon them a' I loe him better; And I'll be his, and he'll be mine, The bonny lad o' Galla water. 3. Although his daddy was nae laird, And though I hae nae muckle tocher, Yet rich in kindest, truest love, We'll tent our flocks by Galla water. 4. It ne'er was gold, it ne'er was wealth, That coft contentment, peace, or pleasure; The bands and bliss o' mutual love, O! that's the choicest warld's treasure. MARY'S CHARMS. to the same air 1. Mary's charms subdu'd my breast, Her glowing youth, her manner winning; My faithful vows I fondly press'd, And mark'd the sweet return beginning. 2. Fancy kindly on my mind Yet paints that ev'ning's dear declining, When, raptur'd first, I found her kind, Her melting soul to love resigning. 3. Years of nuptial bliss have roll'd, And still I've found her more endearing; Each wayward passion she controul'd, Each anxious care, each sorrow cheering, 4. Children now, in ruddy bloom, With artless look attention courting. With infant smiles dispel each gloom, Around our hut so gaily sporting. GALLA WATER. to the same air 1. Braw, braw lads of Galla water, O braw lads of Galla water! I'll kilt my coats aboon my knee, And follow my love through the water. 2. Sae fair her hair, sae brent her brow, Sae bonny blue her een, my dearie; Sae white her teeth, sae sweet her mou', The mair I kiss, she's ay my dearie. 3. Owre yon bank, and owre yon brae, Owre yon moss amang the heather; I'll kilt my coat aboon my knee, And follow my love through the water. 4. Down amang the broom, the broom, Down amang the broom, my dearie, The lassie lost a silken snood, That cost her mony a blirt and bleary. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
