The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
509. Song—Fragment—There was a Bonie Lass
 
 
THERE was a bonie lass, and a bonie, bonie lass,
  And she lo’ed her bonie laddie dear;
Till War’s loud alarms tore her laddie frae her arms,
  Wi’ mony a sigh and tear.
Over sea, over shore, where the cannons loudly roar,        5
  He still was a stranger to fear;
And nocht could him quail, or his bosom assail,
  But the bonie lass he lo’ed sae dear.
