Bonnie Mary

This song is by Dougie MacLean.

Gae bring tae me a pint o' wine
And fill it in a silver tassie
That I may drink afore I go
A service tae my bonnie lassie

The boat rocks at the pier o'leith
For loud the wind blows frae the ferry
The ship rides by the berwick law
And I maun leave my bonnie mary

The trumpet sounds the banners fly
The glittering spears are rank and ready
The shouts o' war are heard afar
The battle closes thick and bloody

But it's not the roar o' sea and shore
Was mak' me longer wish tae tarry
Nor shouts o' war that's heard afar
It's leaving thee my bonny mary
