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