BONNIE SUZIE CLELLAND

1.
There was a lady in Scotland,
Oh, my love, oh, my love. . .
There was a lady in Scotland,
Oh, my love, so early. . .
There was a lady in Scotland,
She'd fallen in love with an Englishman.
5.
Up then stepped a fine, young boy,
Up then stepped a fine, young boy,
Here am I, a fine, young boy,
I'll carry your tidings to your joy.
REFRAIN  (done at the end of each verse)

Bonnie Suzie Clelland's 
To be married in Dundee.
6.
Give to him this sheathen knife,
Tell him to find another wife.
2.
The father unto the daughter came,
etc. . .
Will you forsake this Englishman?
7.
Give to him this fine, gold ring,
Tell him I'm going to my burning.
Bonnie Suzie Clelland's
To be buried in Dundee.
3.
I will not that man forsake,
Though you burn me at the stake.
8.
The father dragged her to the stake,
The mother there a fire did make.
Bonnie Suzie Clelland's
To be buried in Dundee.
4.
Where can I find a fine, young boy,
To carry my tidings to my joy?
