[Verse 1]
                                                       D
There were four-and-twenty nobles fasted at the king's ha'
    C          G             D              G
And bonnie Glenlogie was the flo'er o' them a'
                                                    D
There were nine and nine nobles rade thro' Banchory fair
     C          G             D              G
Aye, bonnie Glenlogie was the flo'er o' them there

[Verse 2]
                                                    D
There were six-and-six maidens fasted at the king's ha'
       C           G             D              G
Bonnie Jean o' Bethelnie was the flo'er o' them a'
                                                     D
Doon cam' Jeannie Gordon, she cam' trippin' doon the stair
      C          G        D           G
She's chosen Glenlogie o' a' that was there

[Verse 3]
                                           D
"Glenlogie, Glenlogie, gin ye'll prove sae kind
   C             G             D            G
My love is laid upon you, I've tell'd ye my mind"
                                               D
He's turnin' 'roon lightly as the Gordons does a'
     C                 G            D         G
"I'm sorry, Jeannie Gordon, but I'm promised awa'"

[Verse 4]
                                                     D
So he's ca'ed tae her maidens for tae make her a bed
         C               G           D          G
Aye, wi' ribbons an' wi' napkins tae tie up her heid
                                                      D
An' it's up an' spak' her faither, well a wae man wis he
      C             G              D              G
"I'll wad ye tae Dunfermline, he's mair gowd than he"

[Verse 5]
                                              D
"Ye haud your tongue, faither, for this winna be
      C          G          D          G
Gin I get me Glenlogie, for him will I dee"
                                                D
Her faither's ain chaplain, he's a man o' great skill
     C             G             D          G
He's write a braid letter, oh, indicted him weel

[Verse 6]
                                            D
Saying, "A pox on ye, Logie, noo sin' it is so
          C                G               D          G
There's a lady's love laid on ye, must she die in her woe?
                                       D
And a pox on ye, Logie, noo sin' it is time
          C                G               D          G
There's a lady's love laid on ye, must she die in her prime?"

[Verse 7]
                                                   D
When Glenlogie's got the letter, him bein' amangst men
          C                G                 D         G
Ach, it's up an' spak' Glenlogie, "What does yon woman mean?"
                                                 D
Then he looked at the letter, a light lauch gied he
         C            G               D              G
Aye, but e'er he read ower it, ach, a tear blint his e'e

[Verse 8]
                                              D
"Ga' saddle me the black horse, saddle me the broon
       C           G             D           G
Bonnie Jean o' Bethelnie will be deid e'er I win"
                                               D
But the horses was nae saddled, nor led on the green
         C          G         D                G
Aye, an' bonnie Glenlogie was twelve miles his lane

[Verse 9]
                                                D
It was pale and wan was she when Glenlogie cam' in
        C            G                 D           G
But was red and rosy grew she when she kent it was him
                                                 D
"Whaur lies your pain, lady? Does it lie in your side?
      C               G             D           G
Whaur lies your pain, lady? Does it lie in your heid?"

[Verse 10]
                                           D
"Oh no, no, Glenlogie, you're far frae the pairt
        C            G               D          G
For the pain that ye speak of, oh it lies in my heart"
                                                D
"Turn 'roon, Jeannie Gordon, turn 'roon on your side
     C           G           D            G
It's I'll be the bridegroom, ye'll be the bride"

                                                      D
Oh, noo Jeannie's gotten mairried and her tocher doon told
       C           G                D             G
Bonnie Jean o' Bethelnie was scarce sixteen years auld
                                           D
Bethelnie, oh Bethelnie, ye shine whaur ye stand
        C              G             D            G
And the heather bells aroon ye shine ower Fyvie's land
