No: 210; variant: 210A

  1. O it’s up in the Highlands, and along the sweet Tay, Did bonie James Campbell ride monie a day.
  2. Sadled and bridled, and bonie rode he; Hame came horse, hame came sadle, but neer hame cam he.
  3. And doun cam his sweet sisters, greeting sae sair, And down cam his bonie wife, tearing her hair.
  4. ‘My house is unbigged, my barn’s unbeen, My corn’s unshorn, my meadow grows green.’
