Sweet Carnloch Bay

Melody -

When Winter was brawling, o'er high hills and mountains,
And dark were the clouds o'er the deep rolling say,
I spied a wee lass as the daylight was dawning,
She was asking the road to sweet Carnloch Bay.

2. I said my wee lassie I canna weel tell ye
The number of miles or how far it might be
But if you'll consent I'll convoy you a wee bit,
And I'll show you the road to sweet Carnloch Bay.

3. You turn to the right and pass down by the churchyard
Cross over the river and down by the sea;
We'll call in Pat Hamill's and have a wee drop there
Just to help us along to sweet Carnloch Bay.

4. Here's a health to Pat Hamill likewise the wee lassie
And to every laddie that's listening to me.
And ne'er turn your back on a bonny wee lassie
When she's asking the road to sweet Carnloch Bay.
