Songs by Robert Burns

Bob Hay & the Jolly Beggars song book

Charlie, he's my darling

      A           Dm
Twas on a Monday morning,

       A           Dm
Right early in the year,

That Charlie came to our town,

    Gm       A
The young Chevalier.

An' Charlie, he's my darling,

    Gm          Dm
My darling, my darling,

Charlie, he's my darling,

     A         Dm
The young Chevalier.

As he was walking up the street,
The city for to view,
O there he spied a bonie lass
The window looking through,
An' Charlie, etc.

Sae light's he jumped up the stair,
And tirl'd at the pin;
And wha sae ready as hersel'
To let the laddie in.
An' Charlie, etc.

He set his Jenny on his knee,
All in his Highland dress;
For brawly weel he ken'd the way
To please a bonie lass.
An' Charlie, etc.

It's up yon heathery mountain,
An' down yon scroggie glen,
We daur na gang a milking,
For Charlie and his men,
An' Charlie, etc.
