[Verse 1]
I've seen lots o' bonnie lassies trav'llin' far and wide,
But my heart is centered noo' on bonnie Kate McBride.
And altho' I'm no a chap that throws a word away,
I'm surprised my sel' sometimes at a' I've got to say.

[Chorus]
Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonnie banks o' Clyde.
Roamin' in the gloamin' wae my lassie by my side.
When the sun has gone to rest,That's the time that we love best
O, it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin'!

[Verse 2]
One nicht in the gloamin' we were trippin' side by side.
I kissed her twice and asked her once if she would be my bride.
She was shy, so was I we were baith the same,
But I got brave and braver on the journey comin' hame.

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Last nicht efter strollin' we got hame at halfpast nine.
Sittin at the kitchen fire I asked her to be mine.
When she promised,I got up and danced the Hielan' fling.
I've just been at the jew'ller's and I've picked a nice wee ring.

[Chorus]
