CHARLIE HE'S MY DARLING

Melody - Seq. by Randy Ralph

Twas on a monday morning,
Right early in the year,
That Charlie came to our town,
The young Chevalier.
Chorus:
An' Charlie he's my darling,
My darling, my darling,
Charlie he's my darling
The young Chevalier.

2. As he was walking up the street,
The city for to view,
O there he spied a bonie lass
The window looking thro'.
Chorus:

3. Sae light's he jimped up the stair,
And tirl'd at the pin;
And wha sae ready as hersel',
To let the laddie in.
Chorus:

4. He set his Jenny on his knee,
All in his Highland dress;
For brawlie weel he ken'd the way
To please a bonie lass.
Chorus:

5. It's up on yon heathery mountain,
An' down yon scroggy glen,
We daur na gang a milking,
An' Charlie and his men.
Chorus:
