BANKS AND BRAES O' BONNY DOON 1811 Ye banks and braes o' bon ny Doon, How 8 6 can you bloom sae fresh and fair? How can ye sing, ye lit tle birds, While I'm sae wea ry fu' o' care? Ye'll break my heart, ye lit tle birds, That war ble on the flow' ry thorn; Ye mind me o' de Ad lib. part ed joys, De part ed, ne ver to re turn. 2. Aft hae I strayed by bonny Doon, To see the rose and woodbine twine, And hear ilk bird sing of its love, As fondly sae did I of mine: Wi' lightsome heart I pu'd a rose, Sae sweet upon its thorny tree; But my fause love has stown the rose. And left the sharpest thorn to me. 3. O blaw, ye flow'rs, your bonny bloom. And draw the wild birds to the burn! For Lumon promis'd me a ring, And ye maun aid me, should I mourn, O na, na, na, ye needna bloom! My een are dim and drowsy worn; Ye bonny birds, ye needna sing, For Lumon never will return. 4. My Lumen's love, in broken sighs, At dawning day by Doon ye'se hear; At mid-day, by the willow green, For him I'll shed the silent tear. Sweet birds! I ken ye'll pity me, And join me wi' a plaintive sang, While echoe waked, to aid the mane I mak for him I lo'ed sae lang. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
