Capo 4

[Intro]
C F G
C F G

[Verse 1]
C F
As I rode down by Brig O Dye
G C
And past yon hill o' broom
F C
A maiden sang right merrily
F G
Just as the sun gaed doon

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"

[Verse 2]
C F
Well, I lighted off my dapple grey
G C
And walked by her side
F C
Sayin', "Lassie, I hae lost my way
F G
Upon your moor sae wide
F C
Oh, war me o' your face sae fair
F G
Yer een sae bonny blue
C F Am
An' the longest day I blithely share
Dm7 F
Tae kiss your cherry moo

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"

[Verse 3]
C F
Oh lassie, will ye gan wi' me
G C
And leave yer cauld richt glen?
F C
Wi' a' my kin, ye'll bear the gree
F G
There's wealth baith but and ben
F C
Wi' silks and satins busket braw
F G
And ribbons fer yer hair
C F Am
And maids tae answer when ye ca'
Dm7 F
So can ye wish for mair?

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"

[Verse 4]
C F
Oh, lassie, ye maun think awhile
G C
My lands are far and wide
F C
I've gold in banks and ships at sea
F G
So come and be my bride
F C
My faither's left me lordships twa
F G
A coach at my command
C F Am
I'll mak' ye lady o' them a'
Dm7 F
If ye'll gie me yer hand

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"

[Verse 5]
C F
Oh, lassie, think yer Donald's poor
G C
Has neither horse nor coo
F C
A shepherd stragglin' ower the moor
F G
Is no' a match for you"
F C
"Oh Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
F G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And I'd rather meet my Donald there
Dm7 F
Than be fair Scotland's Queen"

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"

[Verse 6]
C F
"Oh, lassie I am loath tae tell
G C
You throw yer love awa'
F C
Yer Donald brally kens himsel'
F G
Last gloamins what I saw
F C
As I rode by his shielin' door
F G
I spied a heiland maid
C F Am
And yer Donald kissed her ower and ower
Dm7 F
And rolled her in his plaid"

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"

[Verse 7]
C F
"Oh, would you swear a solemn oath
G C
What you hae told tae me?
F C
I wouldnae dread my Donald's faith
F G
But sae base loon ye lee"
F C
It's he's thrown off his laland dress
F G
Combed doon his yellow hair
C F Am
Sayin', "Lassie, you've been true tae me
Dm7 F
And now we'll part nae mair

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"

[Verse 8]
C F
Nae mair I'm shepherd o' the glen
G C
But laird a'yont the Dee
F C
And since ye hae been true tae me
F G
I'll aye prove true tae thee"

[Chorus]
F C
Sayin', "Cairn O' Mount is bleak and bare
Dm7 G
And cauld lies Clach na Benn
C F Am
And you can see the snow lyin' there
Dm7 F
Along the summer's end"
