lyrics

Ae Whitsun day in Huntley toon, it's there I did agree
Wi' Bogie o' Cairnie a six month for tae fee
Tae drive his twa best horses, tae cairt and harry and ploo
And dae onything aboot farmwork that I very well can do

Noo Bogie he had a daughter, her name was Isabelle
She was the lily o' the valley and the primrose o' the dell
And when she went oot walking, she chose me for her guide
Doon by the burn o' Cairnie tae watch the sma' fish glide

When three lang months had passed and gane this lassie's lost her bloom
The red fell frae her rosy cheeks and her tears cam tumblin' doon
When nine lang months had passed and gane she brought forth tae me a son
And I was quickly sent for tae see what could be done

Well I offered for tae marry her, but ah that would nae dae
He said yer no' a match for my bonny Belle and she's no' a match for ye
Then he send me packin' doon the road wi' nae a penny o' me fee
So a' ye lads o' Huntleyside, a lang fareweel tae ye

Noo she's married tae a tinker lad wha' comes frae Huntleyside
He plays faither tae me bonny bairn and husband tae me bride
And mebbe she's gotten a better match, auld Bogie cannae tell
But I was first tae win the hairt o' Bogie's Bonny Belle
