Lassie, Lie Near Me

A wonderfully sensitive version of this old Jacobite song. It’s sung by Fiona Davidson.

Lassie, Lie Near Me

Lang hae we pairtit been, lassie, my dearie
Nou we are met again, lassie, lie near me
Near me, near me, lassie, my dearie
Lang hast thou lain thy lane – lassie, lie near me

Frae dread Culloden’s field, bluidie an drearie
Murnin my country’s fate, lanelie an wearie
Wearie, wearie, lanelie an wearie
Become a sad banished wight, faur frae my dearie

Loud, loud the win did roar, stormie an eerie
Faur frae my native shore, dangers stude near me
Near me, near me, dangers stude near me
Nou I’ve escaped them aa, lassie, lie near me

Aa that I hae endured, lassie, my dearie
Here in thine arms is cured, lassie, lie near me
Near me, near me, lassie, lie near me
Lang hast thou lain thy lane, lassie, lie near me
