Highland fairy lullaby

Lyrics

I left my baby lying here
Lying here, lying here
I left my baby lying here
To go and gather blaeberries

Chorus
Hovan, hovan gorry og o
Gorry og o, gorry o go
Hovan, hovan gorry o go
I never found my baby, O!

I saw the swan upon the lake
Upon the lake, upon the lake
I saw the swan upon the lake
But never found my baby, O!

I heard the curlew crying far
Crying far, crying far
I heard the curlew crying far
But never heard my baby, O!

I searched the moorland tarns and then
Wandered through each silent glen
I saw the mist upon the ben
But never saw my baby, O!
