99—ANNIE LAURIE

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
Which ne'er forgot will be
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me doon and dee.

Her brow is like the snaw-drift,
Her neck is like the swan,
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 e'e
And for bonnie Annie Laurie—
I'd lay me doon and dee.
