I-
-
How lang and dreary is the nightB
When I am frae my dearieC
I restless lie frae e'en to mornD
Though I were ne'er sae wearyC
For oh her lanely nights are langE
And oh her dreams are eerieC
And oh her widow'd heart is sairC
That's absent frae her dearieC
-
II-
-
When I think on the lightsome daysF
I spent wi' thee my dearieC
And now what seas between us roarC
How can I be but eerieC
-
III-
-
How slow ye move ye heavy hoursG
The joyless day how drearyC
It was na sae ye glinted by-
When I was wi' my dearieC
For oh her lanely nights are langE
And oh her dreams are eerieC
And oh her widow'd heart is sairC
That's absent frae her dearieC
