lyrics

Buchan, it’s bonnie and there lives my love
My heart lies on him and will not remove
It will not remove oh for all that I have done
Oh I never will forget my love Annachie
For Annachie Gordon he's bonnie and he's rough
He'd entice any woman that ever he saw
He'd entice any woman and so he has done me
Oh I never will forget my love Annachie

Down came her father and he's standing by the door
Saying Jeannie you're trying the tricks of a whore
You care nothing for a man who cares so very much for thee
You must marry Lord Saltoun and leave Annachie
For Annachie Gordon, he's barely but a man
Although he may be pretty but where are his lands?
Oh the Saltoun's lands are broad and his towers they run high
You must marry Lord Saltoun and leave young Annachie

With Annachie Gordon I'd beg for my bread
And before I'll marry Saltoun with gold to my head
With gold to my head and gowns fringed to the knee
And I'll die if I don't get me love Annachie
And you that are my parents to Church you may me bring
But unto Lord Saltoun I'll never bear a son
For a son or a daughter, oh I'll never bow my knee
Oh I'll die if I don't get me love Annachie

Jeannie was married and from church she was brought home
And when she and her maidens so merry should have been
When she and her maidens so merry should have been
She went into her chambers she’s crying all alone

Come to bed now Jeannie me honey and my sweet
For to style you my mistress it would be so sweet
Be it mistress or Jeannie it's all the same to me
But in your bed Lord Saltoun I never will lie
And down came her father and he's spoken with renown
Saying you that are her maidens go loosen off her gowns
But she fell down to the floor so close down by his knee
Saying father look I'm dying for me love Annachie

The day that Jeannie married was the day that Jeannie died
And the day that young Annachie came home on the tide
And down came her maidens all wringing of their hands
Saying oh it's been so long you've spent so long on the sands
Oh so long on the sands, so long on the flood
They have married your Jeannie and now she lies dead

All you that are her maidens won’t you take me by the hand
Won’t you take me to the chamber that me love she lies in
And he's kissed her cold lips till his heart has turned to stone
And he's died in the chamber where his true love she lay in
