Lyrics: John Rannie

While the moon-beams, all bright,
Give a lustre to night
I'll weep on his dwelling so narrow;
And high o'er his grave the willow trees wave,
Who died on the banks of the Yarrow.

'T was under this shade,
Hand in hand as we strayed,
He fell by the flight of an arrow;
And fast from the wound
His blood stained the ground,
Who died on the banks of the Yarrow.
