I've seen lots of bonnie lassies travelling' far and wide
But heart is centred noo on bonnie Kate McBride
And although I'm no a chap to throw a word away
I'm surprised myself, sometimes, at all I've got to say.

Chorus: Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonnie banks of Clyde
Roamin' in the gloamin' wae my lassie by my side
When the sun has gone to rest
That's the time that we love best
Oh, it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin.'

One nicht in the gloamin we were trippin' side by side
I kissed her twice and asked her once if she would be my bride
She was shy - so was I - we were baith the same
But I got brave and braver on the journey comin' hame.


Last nicht after strollin' we got hame at half past nine
Sittin' at the kitchen fire I asked her to be mine
When she promised, I got up and danced the Highlan' fling
I've just been at the jewellers and I've picked a nice wee ring.
