Though the night be as dark as dungeon, not a star can be seen above
I will be guided without a stumble, into the arms of the one I love

He stepped up to her bedroom window, kneeling gently upon a stone
And he tapped at the bedroom window; “Darling dear do you lie alone?”

“It’s only me your own true lover; open up please and let me in
For I have travelled a weary journey and I’m near drenched to my skin.”

She opened up with the greatest pleasure, unlocked the door and she let him in
They both embraced and kissed each other; till the morning they lay as one

The cocks were waking the birds were whistling; the streams they ran free about the brae
“Remember lass I’m a ploughman’s laddie and the farmer I must obey.”

“Now my love I must go and leave thee and though the hills they are high above
I will climb them with the greater pleasure for I’ve gained your undying love
