D 
When winter was brawling, o’er high hills and  
C 
mountains
 
And  
D 
dark were the  
G 
clouds o’er the  
D 
deep rolling sea
 
I spied a wee lass as the daylight was  
C 
dawning
 
She was  
D 
asking the  
G 
road to sweet  
D 
Carnloch 
 
Bay.

I said ‘My wee lassie, I canna weel tell ye
The number of miles or how far it might be
But if you consent I’ll convoy you a wee bit
And I’ll show you the road to sweet Carnloch Bay.

You turn to the right and pass down by the churchyard
Cross over the river and down by the sea
We’ll call in Pat Hamill’s and have a wee drop there
Just to help us along to sweet Carnloch Bay.

Here’s a health to Pat Hamill likewise the wee lassie
And to every laddie that’s listening to me
And ne’er turn your back on a bonnie wee lassie
When she’s asking the road to sweet Carnloch Bay.
