Charlie Is My Darling

Lady Nairne

Chorus:
Oh! Charlie is my darling,
My darling, my darling,
Oh! Charlie is my darling,
The young Chevalier.

'Twas on a Monday morning,
Right early in the year,
That Charlie came to our town,
The young Chevalier.
Chorus:

As he cam' marching up the street,
The pipes play'd loud and clear,
And a' the folk cam' runnin' out
To see the Chevalier.
Chorus:

Wi' hieland bonnets on their heads
And claymores bright and clear,
They've cam' to fight for Scotland's right
And the young Chevalier.
Chorus:

They've left their bonnie hieland hills,
Their wives and bairnies dear,
To draw the sword for Scotland's lord:
The young Chevalier.
Chorus:

Oh, there were mony beating hearts
And mony hopes and fears;
And mony were the pray'rs put up,
For the young Chevalier.
Chorus:
