Ca' the Ewes tae the Knowes Ca' the ewes tae the knowes Ca' them where the heather grows Ca' them where the burnie rowes My bonnie dearie Hark a mavis evening song Soundin' Cluden's woods amang Then a foldin' let us gang My bonnie dearie We'll gae doon by Cludenside Through the hazels spreading wide All the ways that sweetly glide To the moon sae clearly Doon the Cluden silent hours All in moonshine midnight hours All the dewy buddin' flowers The fairies dance so cheery Ghaist nor boggle shall thou fear Thou art to love Heaven so dear Naught of ill shall come you near My bonnie dearie Fair and lovely as thou art Thou hast stolen my very heart I can die but canna part Wi' my bonnie dearie attributed to Burns (but so is the other Ca ewes) printed in Rise up Singing recorded by Gorden Bok (Verve) and Lou Killen (New songs) SOF
