Tay, the River
Bonnie George Campbell
Anonymous
 
HIE upon Hielands,
  And low upon Tay,
Bonnie George Campbell
  Rade out on a day.
Saddled and bridled        5
  And gallant rade he;
Hame came his gude horse,
  But never came he.
 
Out came his auld mither
  Greeting fu’ sair,        10
And out came his bonnie bride
  Rivin’ her hair.
Saddled and bridled
  And booted rade he;
Toom hame came the saddle,        15
  But never came he.
 
“My meadow lies green,
  And my corn is unshorn;
My barn is to build,
  And my babie ’s unborn.”        20
Saddled and bridled
  And booted rade he;
Toom hame came the saddle,
  But never came he!
