Lyrics

Dumbarton’s drums, they sound sae bonnie
And they remind me of my Johnnie
What fond delight doth stead upon me
When Johnnie kneels and kisses me

My love he is a handsome laddie
And though he is Dumbarton’s caddie
Someday I’ll be a captain’s lady
When Johnnie turns his vow to me

Across the fields of bounding heather
Dumbarton sounds the hour of pleasure
The joy I know will know no measure
When Johnnie kneels and kisses me

Dumbarton’s drums, they sound sae bonnie
And they remind me of my Johnnie
What fond delight doth stead upon me
When Johnnie kneels and kisses me

Tis he alone that can delight me
His roving eye it doth invite me
And when his tender arms enfold me
The blackest night doth turn and flee

Dumbarton’s drums, they sound sae bonnie
And they remind me of my Johnnie
What fond delight doth stead upon me
When Johnnie kneels and kisses me
