Back o' Benachie

[MP3]
Back o' Benachie

1. Oh there's meal and there's ale whaur the Gadie rins,
Wi' the yellow broom and the bonnie whins,
There's meal and there's ale whaur the Gadie rins
At the back o' Bennachie (chorus)

2. As I cam' roond by Bennachie,
A bonnie lass there I did see,
I gied her a wink and she smiled at me,
At the back o' Bennachie. (chorus)

3. Oh I took my lassie on my knee,
Her kilt was short abune her knee,
I says, "My lass will ye come wi' me
Tae the back o' Bennachie?" (chorus)

4. Here's tae the lassie o' Bennachie,
I'll never gang back for her tae see,
I'll bide wi' my mither until I dee,
At the back o' Bennachie. (chorus)
