Broadside ballad entitled 'Bonnie Banks Of Lochlomond'
Copies of this popular song can be hud at 190 & 192
It's yon bonny banks and yon bonny braes,
It's you'll take the high road and I'll take the low,
For I and my true love shall never meet again
On the bonny, bonny banks of Lochlomond.
It's not for the hardship that I must endure,
Nor the leaving of Lochlomond,
But it's for the leaving of my comrades all,
With his bonny laced shoes and his buckles so clear
So handsome was the looks of my charlie.
But as long as I live and as long as I breath,
192 OVERGATE, DUNDEE.
