Gin I Were A Baron's Heir

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Craigie Dhu (1983).

Gin I were a baron's heir
And could I braid wi' gems your hair
And make ye braw as ye are fair
Lassie would ye lo'e me?

And I would take ye tae the toon
And show ye braw sicchts mony an ane
And busk ye wi' a silken goon
Lassie would ye lo'e me?

Or should ye be content to prove
In lowly life unfading love
A heart that nought on earth could move
Lassie would ye lo'e me?

And ere the lavrock wings the sky
Say would ye tae the forest high
And work wi' me sae merrily
Lassie would ye lo'e me?

And when the braw moon glistens o'er
Oor wee bit bield and heathery muir
Will ye nay greet that we're sae puir
Lassie for I lo'e ye?

For I hae naught tae offer ye
Nae gowd frae mine nae pearl frae sea
Nor am I come o' high degree
Lassie but I lo'e ye
