​By Yon Bonnie Banks

This song is by John McDermott and appears on the album Danny Boy (1993).

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

Oh you'll tak' the high road an' I'll tak' the low road
And I'll be in Scotland, afore ye
For me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

T'was there that we parted, in yon shady glen
On the steep, steep sides of Ben Lomond
Where in purple hue, the highland hills we view
And the moon comin' out, in the gloamin'

Oh you'll tak' the high road an' I'll tak' the low
And I'll be in Scotland, afore ye
For me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

The wee birdies sing, and the wild flowers spring
And in sunshine the waters, are sleepin'
But the broken heart, a kens nae second spring again
Tho' the waeful may cease frae their greetin'

Oh you'll tak' the high road an' I'll tak' the low
And I'll be in Scotland, afore ye
For me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond
