Gloomy Winter

Gloomy winter's now awa
soft the westlin' breezes blaw
'mang the birks o' Stanley shaw
the mavis sings fu' cheerie o
sweet the crawflowr's early bell
decks Glenifer's dewy dell
bloomin' like yer bonnie sel'
my young, my artless dearie o

Come my lassie let us stray
o'er Glenkilloch's sunny brae
blythely spend the gowden day
'midst joys that never wearie o

Tow'ring o'er the Newton woods
lav'rocks fan the snaw-white clouds
siller saughs wi' downy buds
adorn the banks sae briery o
round the sylvan fairy nooks
feath'ry breckans fringe the rocks
'neath the brae the burnie jouks
and ilka thing is cheerie o

Trees may bud and birds may sing
flowers may bloom and verdure spring
but joy to me they canna bring
unless wi' ye my dearie o

INSTR. Trees may bud.....
