Written as a poem by Robert Burns and later set to music. There are many variations of this song, some with up to six verses, this is the original version. The tune used is ''The Brave Lads Of Galla Water''
[Am]Braw, [G]braw [C]lads on [G]Yarrow braes,
Ye [C]won[G]der thro the [F]blooming heather,
But [G]Yarrow [C]braes nor [Am]Ettrick shaws
Can [C]match [G]the lads o' [F]Galla Water.
[Am]Braw, [G]Braw [C]Lads
But there is ane, a secret ane,
Aboon them a' I loe him better;
And I'll be his, and he'll be mine,
The bonie lad o' Galla Water.
Altho' his daddie was nae laird,
And tho' I had nae meikle tocher,
Yet, rich in kindest, truest love,
We'll tent our flocks by Galla Water.
It ne'er was wealth, it ne'er was wealth,
That coft contentment, peace, and pleasure:
The bands and bliss o' mutual love,
O, that's the chiefest warld's treasure!
