Comments

The delicate simplicity of this song appealed to many when it was published, and it became Walt's best known work. The solo version was printed with parts for solo violin and solo cello, which we offer separately here at no cost. The MP3 files for those versions present the instrument in the context of the song.

Lyrics

I love a lassie as fair as can be,
And she dwells where the blue-bells grow;
Far in old Scotland she’s waiting for me,
Where the heather is all aglow.
Sometimes dreaming here alone,
Mem’ry makes her heart my own,
And I hear her calling sweet and low
For I know that she loves me so!

Far o’er the mountains one day I shall roam,
For it’s there that my heart would be;
Bluebell and heather are calling me home,
To the lassie who longs for me.
Day is dying, night is near,
Only one sweet voice I hear;
And I soon shall wander o’er the hill
To the lassie who loves me still!
