The Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond

By yon bonnie banks
And by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright
On Loch Lomond
Oh we twa ha'e pass'd
sae mony blithesome days,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks
O' Loch Lomond.


Oh ye'll tak' the high road
and I'll tak' the low road,

An' I'll be in Scotland before ye',
But wae is my heart until we meet again
On the Bonnie, bonnie banks
O' Loch Lomond.

About Anthem

"The Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond" is a traditional Scottish song. It was first published in 1841 in Vocal Melodies of Scotland.

Loch Lomond is a large Scottish lake to the north of Dumbarton and north-west of Glasgow.

There are many theories about the meaning of the song. One interpretation is that it is (apocryphally) attributed to a Jacobite Highlander who was captured after the 1745 rising while he was fleeing near Carlisle and is sentenced to die (image: Morier's painting "Culloden" /source: Wikipedia).
