Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank The rifted wood roars wild and dreary Loud the iron yett does clank The cry of hoolits mak's me eerie
Abune my breath I daurnae speak For fear I rouse your waukrife daddy Cauld's the blast upon my cheek Arise, arise, my bonnie lady
She's op'd the door, she's let him in She's cuist aside his dreepin' plaidie What care I for rain or wind For Maggie noo I'm here aside ye
