LOCH LOMOND Trad. Scottish Original Donald MacDonald lyrics 1746 O whither away my bonnie May Sae late and sae dark in the gloamin? The mist gathers gray oer moorland and brae. O whither sae far are ye roamin? O, yell tak the high road and Ill tak the low. Ill be in heaven afore ye. For me and my true love will never meet again By the bonnie, bonnie banks o Loch Lomond. I trusted my ain love last night in the broom, My Donald wha loves me sae dearly. For the morrow he will march for Edinburgh toon, Tae fecht for his king and Prince Charlie. O, weel may I weep for yestreen in my sleep. We lay bride and bridegroom together. But his touch and his breath were chilly as the death, And his heartsblood ran red in the heather. (chorus) As dauntless in battle as tender in love, Hed yield neer a foot tae the foeman. But never again frae the fields o the slain Tae his Moira will he come by Loch Lomond. The thistle may bloom, the king hae his ain, And fond lovers will meet in the gloamin. And me and my true love will yet meet again Far above the bonnie banks o Loch Lomond. (chorus) ~ from Alec Fraser ~ (Contributed by =Ae= - January 2009) ***************** LOCH LOMOND As sung by Deanna Durbin in the Universal film 'It's A Date' 1940 Director: William A. Seiter Leads: Deanna Durbin / Kay Francis / Walter Pidgeon Also known as 'The Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond' By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond Where me and my true love were ever wont to age On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. O you take the high road and I'll take the low road And I'll be in Scotland afore ye But me and my true love will never meet again On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. 'Twas there that we parted by yon shady glen On the steep steep side of Ben Lomond Where in purple hue the hieland hills we view And the moon coming out in the gloamin'. O you take the high road and I'll take the low road And I'll be in Scotland afore ye But me and my true love will never meet again On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
