Dumbarton's Drums D A Dumbarton's drums, they sound so bonnie D When they remind me of my Johnny G D What fond delight can steal upon me A D when Johnny kneels and kisses me Across the fields of bounding heather Dumbarton tolls the hour of pleasure a song of love that has no measure When Johnny kneels and sings to me Tis he alone that can delight me His graceful eye, it doth invite me And when his tender arms enfold me The blackest night doth turn and dee My love he is a handsome laddie And tho he is Dumbarton's caddie Someday I'll be a captain's lady When Johnny tends his vows to me recorded by the Beers Family and Jean Redpath on There were Minstrels SOF
