Annie Laurie
by William  Douglas

 Maxwelton's hills are bonnie
 Where early falls the dew
 And 'twas there that Annie Laurie
 Gived me her promise true. 
 Gived me her promise true
 Which ne'er forgot shall be
 And for bonnie Annie Laurie
 I'd lay me down and die.

 Her brow is like the snow drift,
 Her throat is like the swan,
 Her face, it is the fairest
 That e'er the sun shone on.
 That e'er the sun shone on
 And dark blue are her eyes
 And for bonnie Annie Laurie
 I'd lay me down and die.

 Like dew on the daisy lyin'
 Is the fall of her fairy feet
 And like winds in summer sighing
 Her voice is low and sweet.
 Her voice is low and sweet 
 And she's all the world to me
 And for bonnie Annie Laurie
 I'd lay me down and die.
