lyrics

When o'er the hill the eastern star
Tells buchtin' time is near my jo
And owsen frae the furrowed fields
Return sae dowf and wearie o
Doon by the burn, the scented birk
Wi dew are hanging clear my jo
I'd meet ye on the lea rig
My ain, kind dearie o.

At midnight hour, on mirkest glen
I'd rove and ne'er be eerie o
If through that glen I gaed tae thee
My ain, kind dearie o
Although the nights were ne'er sae wild
And I were ne'er sae wearie o
I'd meet thee on the lea rig
My ain, kind dearie o.

The hunter lo'es the morning sun
Tae rouse the mountain deer my jo
At noon the fisher seeks the glen
Alang the burn tae steer my jo
Gie me the hour o' gloamin' grey
It makes my heart sae cheerie o
Tae meet thee on the lea rig
My ain kind dearie o.
