Bonnie Ann

 C           F         C         F
Ye gallants bright, I rede you right, 
 C         F     G
Beware o' bonie Ann!
     C      F       C        F    
Her lovely face sae fu' o' grace, 
      C         F    G  C
Your heart she will beguile. 
     C    F    C          C    F   C
Her eyes sae bright like stars by night,
Graceful like the swan. 
     C       F       C      F
Sae jimply lac'd her genty waist 
      C      F   G     C
That sweetly ye might span. 

Youth, Grace, and Love attendant move, 
And Pleasure leads the van: 
In a' their charms, and conquering arms, 
They wait on bonie Ann. 
The captive bands may chain the hands, 
But love enslaves the man: 
Ye gallants braw, I rede you a', 
Beware o' bonie Ann!
