Robert Burns: Fairest Maid On Devon Banks:

Fairest Maid On Devon Banks

 

Type: Song
Tune: Rothiemurchie.

Chorus-Fairest maid on Devon banks,
Crystal Devon, winding Devon,
Wilt thou lay that frown aside,
And smile as thou wert wont to do?

Full well thou know’st I love thee dear,
Couldst thou to malice lend an ear!
O did not Love exclaim: «Forbear,
Nor use a faithful lover so.»
Fairest maid, &c.

Then come, thou fairest of the fair,
Those wonted smiles, O let me share;
And by thy beauteous self I swear,
No love but thine my heart shall know.
Fairest maid, &c.
