Verse:
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomon',
Oh, we twa ha'e pass'd sae mony blithesome days,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomon'.
 
You caused me to weep, you caused me to mourn,
You caused me to leave my home.
Oh! that lonesome pine and these good old times,
I'm on my way back home to Loch Lomon'.
 
Chorus:
Oh! ye'll tak' the high road, an' I'll tak' the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland before ye,
But wae is my heart until we meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomon'.
