Annie Laurie.

Maxwelton Braes are bonnie,
Where early fa’s the dew,
And it’s there that Annie Laurie
Gie’d me her promise true;
Gie’d me her promise true,
Which ne’er forgot will be’
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doune and dee.

Her brow is like the snaw drift—
Her throat is like the swan,
Her face it is the fairest
That e’er the sun shown on—
That e’er the sun shown on—
And dark blue is her e’e;
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doune and dee.

Like dew on the gowan lying
Is the fa’ o’ her fairy feet,
And like the winds in summer sighing
Her voice is low and sweet,
Her voice is low and sweet,
And she’s a’ the world to me;
and for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doune and dee.
None
