One morn in May when fields were gay,
Serene and pleasant was the weather,
I spied a lass and a very bonny lass,
She was sweeping the dew from among the heather
Down the moor.
In among the heather,
O'er the moor, through the heather
I spied a lass and a very bonny lass
She was sweeping the dew from among the heather
Down the moor.

Bare footed was she, she was comely dressed
And her head bore neither hat nor feather,
She'd a plaid wrapped neatly round her waist
As she tripped through the blooming heather
Down the moor.
In among the heather,
O'er the moor, through the heather
She'd a plaid wrapped neatly round her waist
As she tripped through the blooming heather
Down the moor.

I stepped up to this fair young maid,
"Tell your name, come tell me hither."
She answered me, "Down by the bonny burn side
I am herding all my ewes together
Down the moor."
And among the heather,
O'er the moor, through the heather
She answered me, "Down by the bonny burn side
I am herding all my ewes together
Down the moor."

I courted her that live-long day,
My heart as light as any feather,
Until the beams of the red-setting sun
Come a-shining down in among the heather
Down the moor.
In among the heather,
O'er the moor, through the heather
Until the beams of the red-setting sun
Come a-shining down in among the heather
Down the moor.

She said "Young man, I must away,
My ewes are straying from each other.
But I'm as loath for to part with you
As the bonnie wee lamb is to part his mother
Down the moor.
In among the heather,
O'er the moor, through the heather
But I'm as loath for to part with you
As the bonnie wee lamb is to part his mother
Down the moor"

So up she got and away she went,
And her name and place I cannot gather.
But if I was a king I would make her a queen,
The bonnie lass I met in among the heather
Down the moor.
In among the heather,
O'er the moor, through the heather
But if I was a king I would make her a queen,
The bonnie lass I met in among the heather
Down the moor.
