Ca' the Yowes

Alastair McDonald - Sings Robert Burns - Ca' the Yowes

As I gaed down the water-side,
There I met my shepherd lad:
He row'd me sweetly in his plaid,
And he ca'd me his dearie.

Chorus:
Ca' the yowes to the knowes ,
Ca' them where the heather grows,
Ca' them where the burnie rowes ,
My bonie dearie

Will ye gang down the water-side,
And see the waves sae sweetly glide
Beneath the hazels spreading wide,
The moon it shines fu' clearly.

Chorus:
Ca' the yowes to the knowes ,
Ca' them where the heather grows,
Ca' them where the burnie rowes ,
My bonie dearie

Ye sall get gowns and ribbons meet,
Cauf-leather shoon upon your feet,
And in my arms ye'se lie and sleep,
An' ye sall be my dearie.

Chorus:
Ca' the yowes to the knowes ,
Ca' them where the heather grows,
Ca' them where the burnie rowes ,
My bonie dearie

If ye'll but stand to what ye've said,
I'se gang wi' thee, my shepherd lad,
And ye may row me in your plaid,
And I sall be your dearie.

Chorus:
Ca' the yowes to the knowes ,
Ca' them where the heather grows,
Ca' them where the burnie rowes ,
My bonie dearie

While waters wimple to the sea,
While day blinks in the lift sae hie ,
Till clay-cauld death sall blin' my e'e ,
Ye sall be my dearie.

Chorus:
Ca' the yowes to the knowes ,
Ca' them where the heather grows,
Ca' them where the burnie rowes ,
My bonie dearie
.
