    Loch Lomond

    Scottish (late 1800’s)


                C        Am                      F           G

    By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes

                      C              Am                 F   G
    Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond,

                F               Am                 Dm              F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
    Where me and my true love were ever wont to be,

                 C                   Am                Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lo         -         mond.

    CHORUS

            C                   Am                F                 G
    Oh! You'll take the high road, and I'll take the low road,

           C             Am        F      G
    And I'll be in Scotland before you,

            F               Am                Dm              F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
    But me and my true love we'll never meet again,

                 C                   Am                Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lo         -         mond.

     

                C               Am            F              G
    'Twas then that we parted, in yon shady glen

                 C               Am              F   G
    On the steep, steep side of Ben Lomond,

         F                  Am        Dm                      F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
    Where in purple hue, the Highland hills we view

                    C               Am            Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
    And the moon coming out in the gloam      -        ing.

     

    Chorus

             C               Am                F                G

    The wee birdies sing, and the wildflowers spring

                C                  Am            F   G
    And in sunshine the waters are sleeping,

                     F                    Am      Dm                  F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
    But the broken heart will ken no second spring again,

                   C               Am                    Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
    Tho' the woeful may cease frae their grieving.
