Hieland Laddie trad

Lyrics courtesy of

Was you ever in Quebec?
Bonnie Laddie , Hieland laddie

Stowing lumber on the deck
Bonnie Hie - land Laddie

Way hey and away we’ll go
Bonnie Laddie, Hieland Laddie

Way hey and away we’ll go
My bonnie, Hie - land Laddie

Was you ever in Mobile bay,
Bonnie Laddie, Hieland Laddie?

Screwing cotton all the day
Bonnie, Hie - land Laddie ….. CHORUS

Was you ever in Mi – ra – ma - shee?
Bonnie Laddie, Hieland Laddie?

Where you tie up to a tree
Bonnie, Hie – land Laddie ….CHORUS

Was you ever in New Bedford port,
Bonnie, Laddie, Hieland Laddie?

With the girls did you cavort?
Bonnie, Hieland Lad – die…CHORUS

Was you ever in Baltimore
Bonnie Laddie, Hieland Laddie?

Dancing on the sanded floor
Bonnie Hie - land Laddie…CHORUS

Was you ever round Cape Horn
Bonnie Laddie , Hieland Laddie?

Where you wish to God you’d never been born?
Bonnie Hie - land Laddie?..CHORUS
