Maxwelton
Annie Laurie
Anonymous
 
MAXWELTON braes are bonnie,
Where early fa’s the dew,
And it ’s there that Annie Laurie
Gie’d me her promise true,—
Gie’d me her promise true,        5
Which ne’er forgot will be;
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I ’d lay me doune and dee.
 
Her brow is like the snaw-drift;
Her throat is like the swan;        10
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 ee;
And for bonnie Annie Laurie        15
I ’d lay me doune and dee.
 
Like dew on the gowan lying
Is the fa’ o’ her fairy feet;
And like the winds in summer sighing,
Her voice is low and sweet,—        20
Her voice is low and sweet,—
And she ’s a’ the world to me;
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I ’d lay me doune and dee.
