John McDermott (traditional Scottish song, poet Andrew Lang 1876, from song of 1746)

*

   E                       A          F#m
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
          E          A              F#m E
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lo  mon'
      A         E              F#m         A
Where me and my true love will never meet again
       E              A             F#m E
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lo  mon'

    E                            A             E
Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low,
               A         F#m  E
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
    A         E              F#m         A
For me and my true love will never meet again
       E              A             F#m E
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lo  mon'

      E                       A         E
'Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen,
                    A            F#m E
On the steep, steep sides o' Ben Lo  mon'
      A           E       F#m              A
Where in a purple hue the Heilan' hills we view,
       E           A          F#m E
An the moon comin' out in the gloamin'.

    E                            A             E
Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low,
               A         F#m  E
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
    A         E              F#m         A
For me and my true love will never meet again
       E              A             F#m E
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lo  mon'

    G                        C            Em
The wee birdies sing and the wild flowers spring
       G            C          Em  G
And in sunshine the waters are sleepin'
        C               G        Em             C
But the broken heart it kens nae second spring again
         G          C                D   G
Tho' the waefu' may cease frae their greetin'.

    G                            C             G
Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,
               C         Em   G
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
    C         G              Em          C
But me and my true love will never meet again.
       G              C             D G
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomon'
