BLUE BELLS OF SCOTLAND

Scottish folk tune

 

Oh where, tell me where, is your Highland laddie gone?

Oh where, tell me where, is your Highland laddie gone?

He's gone wi' streaming banners where noble deeds are done

And it's oh, in my heart I wish him safe at home

 

Oh where, tell me where, did your Highland laddie dwell?

Oh where, tell me where, did your Highland laddie dwell?

He dwelt in Bonnie Scotland, where blooms the sweet blue bell

And it's oh, in my heart I lo'ed my laddie well

 

Oh what, tell me what, does your Highland laddie wear?

Oh what, tell me what, does your Highland laddie wear?

A bonnet with a lofty plume, and on his breast a plaid

And it's oh, in my heart I lo'ed my Highland lad

 

Oh what, tell me what, if your Highland laddie is slain?

Oh what, tell me what, if your Highland laddie is slain?

Oh no, true love will be his guard and bring him safe again

For it's oh, my heart would break if my Highland lad were slain
