Lyrics - Dumbartons Drums

Chorus:
Dumbartons drums they sound sae bonnie,
And they remind me o my Johnie,
Such fond delight does fall upon me,
When Johnie kneels and kisses me.

My love he is a handsome laddie,
And though he is Dumbartons caddie,
Some day Ill be a Captains lady,
When Johnie tends his vow tae me.

Chorus

Across the fields of bounding heather,
Dumbarton sounds the hour o pleasure,
The joy I know will know no measure,
When Johnie kneels and kisses me.

Chorus

Tis he alone that can delight me,
His roving eyes they do invite me,
And when his tender arms enfold me,
The blackest night does turn and flee.

Chorus
