Description

The words to this song were written by Miss Susanna Blamire (1747-1794).
Original Music by Sir Henry Rowley Bishop (1786-1855).

And ye shall walk in silk attire,
And siller ha’e to spare,
Gin ye’ll consent to be his bride;
Nor think o’ Donald mair.
Oh! wha wad buy a silken gown,
Wi’ a poor broken heart?
Or what’s to me a siller crown,
Gin frae my love I part.
And ye shall walk in silk attire
And siller ha’e to spare,
Gin ye’ll consent to be his bride,
Nor think o’ Donald mair.

I wouldna walk in silk attire,
Nor braid wi’ gems my hair.
Gin he whose faith is pledge wi’ mine.
Were wrang’d and grieving sair.
Frae infancy he lo’ed me still.
And still my heart shall prove.
How weel it can those vows fulfill,
Which first repaid is love.
I wouldna walk in silk attire,
Nor braid wi’ gems my hair.
Gin he whose faith is pledge wi’ mine.
Were wrang’d and grieving sair.
