Lyrics - Lady Ann
Oh Lady Ann, oh Lady Ann,
Don't break my heart, don't let me down,
For I am yours and you are mine,
Oh Lady Ann, oh Lady Ann.
That lady fine, o’ high degree,
She fell in love, with poor old me,
Loved her so, I do declare,
the girl, with the golden hair
I worked the land, her father owned,
A little croft I called my own,
Someday I hoped that I would share,
lonely nights with the golden hair
When a walking, on fine days,
I'd escort her, in her fathers pay,
He trusted me, she was in my care,
knew I loved the golden hair
Far down the glen, where waters flow,
To a secret place, where heather grows,
We both lay down, for a moment there,
They fell on me, those golden hairs.
In time she grew to my delight,
From both of us, a child of light,
Her father’s fortune, to a laird was shared,
To marry my love, with the golden hair.
Until the day they were married there,
I was confined in a dungeon bare,
That night to her room, the laird repaired,
But I’d run away with the golden hair.
