ANNIE LAURIE.
2. *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.
3. Like dew on the gowan lying
Is the fa' o' her fairy feet; And, like winds in summer sighing,
Her voice is low and sweetó Her voice is low and sweet,
And she's a' the world to me; And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me doon and dee.
The first four lines of this stanza are borrowed from an old version of » John Anderson, my Joe."
H. 4868.
