There Was A Bonie Lass

      There was a bonie lass, and a bonie, bonie lass,      And she lo'ed her bonie laddie dear;      Till War's loud alarms tore her laddie frae her arms,      Wi' mony a sigh and tear.      Over sea, over shore, where the cannons loudly roar,      He still was a stranger to fear;      And nocht could him quail, or his bosom assail,      But the bonie lass he lo'ed sae dear.
