My Nanie, O! by Robert Burns
BEHIND yon hills where Lugar flows,
íMang moors aní mosses many, O,
The wintry sun the day has closíd,
And Iíll awa to Nanie, O.
The westlin wind blaws loud aní shill;
The nightís baith mirk and rainy, O;
But Iíll get my plaid aní out Iíll steal,
Aní owre the hill to Nanie, O.
My Nanieís charming, sweet, aní young;
Nae artfuí wiles to win ye, O:
May ill befaí the flattering tongue
That wad beguile my Nanie, O.
Her face is fair, her heart is true;
As spotless as sheís bonie, O:
The opíning gowan, wat wií dew,
Nae purer is than Nanie, O.
A country lad is my degree,
Aní few there be that ken me, O;
But what care I how few they be,
Iím welcome aye to Nanie, O.
My riches aís my penny-fee,
Aní I maun guide it cannie, O;
But warlís gear neíer troubles me,
My thoughts are aí my Nanie, O.
Our auld guidman delights to view
His sheep aní kye thrive bonie, O;
But Iím as blythe that hands his pleugh,
Aní has nae care but Nanie, O.
Come weel, come woe, I care na by;
Iíll tak what Heavín will sení me, O:
Nae ither care in life have I,
But live, aní love my Nanie, O
