The Trooper And The Maid - The Duhks Lyrics

The Duhks CHORDS

The Trooper And The Maid

A trooper lad came here at night
with riding he was weary,
a trooper lad came here at night,
when the moon shone bright and clearly

She's taken the trooper by the hand
And led him to her chamber
She's given him cheese and wine to drink
And the wine it falls like ember
Lassie, Ill lie near you yet,
Bonnie lassie, I'll lie near you,
And I'll gar all your ribbons reel
In the morning air I'll leave you

She's made her bed both long and wide
And made it like a lady
She's taken her coatie over her head
saying trooper are you ready?

They hadn't been, but an hour in bed,
But an hour at a quarter,
When drums came beating down the street
And every beat was shorter

Lassie, Ill lie near you yet,
Bonnie lassie, I'll lie near you,
And I'll gar all your ribbons reel
In the morning air I'll leave you

Lassie I maun leavin' you
Bonnie lassie I maun leave you,
When heather cows grow ousen bows,
and I'll come back and see you

Shes taken her coatie over her head,
and followed him up to Stirling
She grown sae fu and she couldn't a boo,
and they left her in Dunferniline

Bonnie lassie, Ill lie near you yet,
Bonnie lassie, I'll lie near you,
And I'll gar all your ribbons reel
In the morning air I'll leave you

Bonnie lassie, Ill lie near you yet,
Bonnie lassie, I'll lie near you,
And I'll gar all your ribbons reel
In the morning air I'll leave you

Bonnie lassie, Ill lie near you yet,
Bonnie lassie, I'll lie near you,
And I'll gar all your ribbons reel
In the morning air I'll leave you
