Roamin' in the Gloamin'
Album: The Flowers of Scotland
Album: I Love Scottish Sing Along Favorites

Sir Harry Lauder

Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonny banks o' Clyde
Roamin' in the gloamin' with my lassie by my side
When the sun has gone to rest
That's the time we love the best
Ach, it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin'

I've seen lots of bonnie lassies travelin' far and wide
But my heart is centered now on bonny Kate McBride
And altho' I'm no' a man who throws a word away
I'm surprised mysel' sometimes at all I've got to say.

One nicht in the gloamin' we were trippin' side by side
I kissed her twice and asked her once if she would be my bride
She was shy, so was I, we were baith the same
But I got brave and braver on the joumey comin' hame

Last nicht after strollin' we got hame at halfpast nine
Sittin' at the kitchen fire I asked her to be mine
When she promised, I got up and danced the Hielan' fling
I've just been at the jew'llers and I've picked a nice wee ring


Gloaming: twilight
