Songs by Robert Burns

Bob Hay & the Jolly Beggars song book

A red, red rose

   C                         F
O my Luve's like a red, red rose
          C                G
   That's newly sprung in June
   C                      F
O my luve's like the melodie
            C       G       C
   That's sweetly played in tune.
     C                F
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
       C               G
   So deep in love am I;
    C                           F
And I will love thee still, my Dear
        C        G         C
   Till a' the seas gang dry.
        C                   F           
     Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear
           C                 G
And  the rocks melt wi' the sun;
      C                         F
   O I will love thee still, my Dear,
          C         G         C
While the sands o' life shall run.

  And fare thee weel, my only true love
O fare the weel awhile!
  And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile!
