The Bonny Banks of Loch Lomond

Album: Rob Roy therefore the MacGregors
This tune was published by a MacGregor of Glen Endrick, who was simply jailed, alongside a friend, in Carlisle The united kingdomt in 1746. The author was comdemned to death for his help of Bonnie Prince Charlie into the 1745 uprising, while their buddy was going to be set free. The tune tells associated with the old Celtic misconception the heart of a Scot whom dies outside their homeland will discover it really is in the past home because of the religious roadway, and/or reasonable road. So he condemned guy claims to his buddy: "you are taking the large roadway and I also'll take the reduced roadway, and I'll maintain Scotland afore ye..."
Alternative view:
Loch Lomond is a classic Jacobite Air. It's centered on an older folk track Robin Cushie (Kind Robin Loves Me), in McGibbons Scots Tunes Book We, dated 1742. The words are caused by Lady John Scott (1810-1900) whom modified a broadside by Sanderson of Edinburgh (1838). The variation we have been familiar with these days is thought to have first appreared in publications in Poets and Poetry of Scotland (1876).
By yon bonnie banks and also by yon bonnie braes
Where in fact the sun shines brilliant on Loch Lomond
Me and my real love had been previously wont to gae
From the bonny, bonny banking institutions of Loch Lomond

Ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak the low roadway
And I also'll maintain Scotland afore ye
But me and my true-love wouldn't meet again
On bonny, bonny financial institutions of Loch Lomond

'Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen
From the high, high part of Ben Lomond
In which in purple hue the hieland hills we view
In addition to moon coming out in the gloaming

The wee birdies sing in addition to crazy blossoms springtime
Plus in sunshine the oceans tend to be sleeping
However the broken heart it kens nae 2nd springtime again
In addition to waefu' may cease frae their greetin'

bonnie: stunning
braes: hills
gae: go
gloaming: twilight, dusk
greeting: weeping
Hieland: Highland

nae: no
