lyrics

O gin I were a baron's heir,
And could I braid wi' gems your hair,
And be as braw as ye are fair,
Lassie, would ye love me?
And I would tak' ye to the town,
And show ye braw sights, many’s a wan,
And busk ye wi’ a silken gown,
Lassie, would ye love me?

Or should ye be content to prove,
In lowly life unfading love,
A heart that nought on earth could move,
Lassie, would ye love me?
For I have nought to offer ye,
Nae gowd frae mine, nae pearl frae sea,
Nor dae I come frae high degree,
Lassie, but I love ye.

And when the braw moon glistens o'er,
Our wee bit bield and heathery moor,
Will ye nae greet that we're sae poor,
Lassie, for I love ye?
Ere the laverock wing the sky,
would ye untae the forest hie,
And live wi' me until we die,
Lassie, would ye love me?
