ANNIE LAURIE
 
div
 
Maxwelton braes are bonnie
Where early fa's the dew
And it's there that Annie Laurie
Gied me her promise true
Gied me her promise true
Which ne'er forgot will be
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me down and dee.

Her brow is like the snow-drift
Her throat is like the swan
Her face it is the fairest
That e'er the sun shone on
That e'er the sun shone on
And dark blue is her e'e
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me down and dee.

Like dew on the gowan lying
Is the fa' o'her fairy feet
And like the winds in the summer sighing
Her voice is low and sweet
Her voice is low and sweet
And she's all the world to me
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me down and dee.
