My Fiddle And I

TUNE: Green Sleeves

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

1.
Green sleeves and tartan ties
Mark my true love where she lies:
I'll be at her or she rise,
My fiddle and I thegither.
2.
Be it by the crystal burn,
Be it by the milk-white thorn;
I shall rouse her in the morn,
My fiddle and I thegither.


Green sleeves and tartan ties
Mark my true love where she lies:
I will be at her or she rise,
My fiddle and I together.

Be it by the crystal stream,
Be it by the milk-white thorn;
I shall wake her in the morning,
My fiddle and I together.
