'Twas Na Her Bonie Blue E'e

Melody - "Laddie, lie near me"

Robert Burns, 1795

'Twas na her bonie blue e'e was my ruin,
Fair tho' she be, that was ne'er my undoin';
'Twas the dear smile when nae body did mind us,
|: 'Twas the bewitching, sweet, stown glance o' kindness. :|

2. Sair do I fear that to hope is denied me,
Sair do I fear that despair maun abide me,
But tho' fell fortune should fate us to sever,
|: Queen shall she be in my bosom for ever. :|

3. Chloris, I'm thine wi' a passion sincerest,
And thou hast plighted me love o' the dearest!
And thou'rt the angel that never can alter,
|: Sooner the sun in his motion would falter. :|
