No. 113. Now simmer blinks on flowry braes.
Tune: The Birks of Abergeldie Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 113.
Chorus. Bonie lassie, will ye go, Will ye go, will ye go ? Bonie lassie, will ye go
To the birks of Aberfeldy?
Now simmer blinks on flow'ry braes, And o'er the crystal streamlets plays, Come, let us spend the lightsome days In the birks of Aberfeldy.
The little birdies blythely sing, While o'er their heads the hazels hing, Or lightly flit on wanton wing In the birks of Aberfeldy.
The braes ascend like lofty wa's, The foaming stream, deep-roaring, fa's O'erhung wi' fragrant spreading shaws, The birks of Aberfeldy.
The hoary cliffs are crown'd wi' flowers, White o'er the linns the burnie pours, And, rising, weets wi' misty showers The birks of Aberfeldy.
Let Fortune's gifts at random flee, They ne'er shall draw a wish frae me, Supremely blest wi' love and thee, In the birks of Aberfeldy.
