I Heard a Cow Low

I Heard a Cow Low

I heard a cow low, a bonnie cow low,
  An' a cow low down in yon glen,
Lang, lang will my young son greet,
  Or his mither bid him come ben.

I heard a cow low, a bonnie cow low,
  An' a cow low down in yon fauld,
Lang, lang will my young son greet
  Or his mither take him frae cauld.
