Blue Bells of Scotland

Lyrics

Oh where, tell me where Is your Highland laddie gone?
Oh where, tell me where Is your Highland laddie gone?
He’s gone with 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’e 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’e my Highland lad

Oh what, tell me what If your Highland lad be slain?
Oh what, tell me what If your Highland lad be 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

Additional verse on the album Playing Nice Together:

Oh what, will you claim For your constancy to him?
Oh what, will you claim For your constancy to him?
I’ll claim a priest to wed us and a clerk to say amen,
And I’ll ne’er part again from my bonnie Highland lad.
