'Melancholy', Titled Greeting Card or Small Print by 

Annie Laurie

Maxwelton’s braes are bonnie
Where early fa’s the dew
And ‘twas there that Annie Laurie
Gave me her promise true.
Gave me her promise true
Which ne’er forgot will be
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doon and dee.
Her brow is like the snowdrift
Her throat is like the swan
Her face it is the fairest…………………….‘Listen to Music Video Below’
That e’er the sun shone on.
That e’er the sun shone on
And dark blue is her e’e
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doon and dee.

Like dew on th’gowan lying
Is th’ fa’ o’ her fairy feet
And like the winds in summer sighing
Her voice is low and sweet.
Her voice is low and sweet
And she’s a’ the world to me
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I’d lay me doon and dee.

music by Lady John Scott, words by William Douglas and Lady John Scott

  • Thank You Kamal, this is an oldie, but I liked that far away look in her eyes so I renamed her and added different music.
