[Verse 1]
      D                       G             D
Cold winter was turnin' o'er moor and o'er mountain
     G            D            E7           A7
And wild was the surge on the dark rollin' sea
        D                    G            D
When I met aboot daybreak a bonnie young lassie
     G             D            A7        D
That asked me the road and the miles tae Dundee

[Verse 2]
    D                        G              D
I said, "My young lassie, I canna weel tell ye
     G            D            E7           A7
The road and the distance I ne'er can weel gauge
    D                       G           D
But if ye'll permit me tae gang a wee bittie
     G             D            A7        D
I'll show ye the road and the miles tae Dundee

[Verse 3]
    D                       G           D
At once she consented and gave me her air-m
       G            D              E7          A7
Nae a word did I speir wham that lassie might hear
     D                          G          D
She appeared like an angel in feature and for-m
         G           D           A7        D
As she walked by my side on the road tae Dundee

[Verse 4]
    D                       G             D
At length with the howe of Strathmartine behind us
      G            D            E7           A7
The spires o' the toon in full view we could see
     D                          G          D
She said, "Gentle sir, I can never forget ye
       G           D           A7        D
For showin' me so far on the road tae Dundee.

[Verse 5]
      D                          G           D
This ring and this purse please accept as a token
     G               D            E7          A7
And surely there's somethin' that ye can gi'e me,
     D                          G         D
That in years to come I'll the laddie remember
       G           D           A7        D
Who showed me the road and the miles to Dundee?"

[Verse 6]
    D                          G           D
I took the gold pin frae the scarf on my bosom,
     G               D            E7       A7
And said, "Tak' ye this, in remembrance o' me",
     D                          G           D
And bravely I kissed the sweet lips o' the lassie
       G           D          A7        D
Ere I pairted wi' her on the road tae Dundee

[Verse 7]
    D                         G           D
So here's tae the lassie, I ne'er will forget her
     G             D            E7          A7
Tae ilk a young laddie that's list'nin' tae me
  D                  G            D
Never be sweir to convoy a young lassie
             G        D          A7        D
Though it's only to show her the road tae Dundee
