Cue Sheet


*Four lassies promenade, you take a walk on the high road
Go back swing your laddie, he's a fine one
Join hands and you circle, go walking round the ring
You allemande left your corner and weave around the ring
Oh ye'll take the high road and I'll take the low
Swing with your girl and promenade her
Never more to roam, go walking round you go
on the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond


*4 boys promenade and take your bagpipes with you, boy

*4 wee laddies promenade and take a haggis with you, boy

FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru, go four hands around the set
Meet your corner, and do the right & left thru you bet
Veer to the left, ferris wheel around you know
The heads slide apart, and let the sides square thru
Go! Four hands around, heads star thru
Swing the corner girl and promenade her
Promenade back home with this bonnie, bonnie lass
You promenade your lady 'till morning

The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond

By yon bonnie banks an' by yon bonnie braes
Whaur the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Whaur me an' my true love will ne-er meet again (alternate: Where me and my true love were ever lak/wont tae gae)
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomon'.

O ye'll tak' the high road, and Ah'll tak' the low (road)
And Ah'll be in Scotlan' afore ye
Fir me an' my true love will ne-er meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomon'.

'Twas there that we perted in yon shady glen
On the steep, steep sides o' Ben Lomon'
Whaur in (soft) purple hue, the hielan hills we view
An' the moon comin' oot in the gloamin'.


The wee birdies sing an' the wild flouers spring
An' in sunshine the waters are sleeping
But the broken heart, it kens nae second spring again
Tho' the waeful may cease frae their greetin'. (alternate: Tho' the world knows not how we are grieving)

Lyrics by traditional Scottish song.
Recorded by many.
