I weep the same, oh bonnie, bonnie maid,
True love from battle returning;
At the height of his fame, you come prescient,
And turn into gladness your mourning.

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

Oh well may I weep, ye dream in my sleep,
Still bride and bridegroom together;
But his lips and his breath were chilly as death,
And his heart blood was red in the heather.

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

So earnest in battle was earnest in love,
Yield nae a foot to the foeman;
With his laugh so pristine he will never return,
To his love on the banks of Loch Lomond.

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