Dainty Davie Lyrics

Dainty Davie (Robert Burns)Meet me on the Warlock Knowe, Dainty Davie, Dainty Davie!There I'll spend the day wi' you, My ain dear Dainty Davie.Now rosy May comes in wi' flowersTo deck her gay, green-spreading bowers;And now comes in the happy hours To wander wi my Davie.The crystal waters round us fa'The merry birds are lovers a',The scented breezes round us blaw A wandering wi my Davie.When purple morning starts the hareTo steal upon her early fare,Then thro the dews I will repair To meet my faithfu' Davie.When day, expiring in the west,The curtain draws o Nature's rest,I flee to his arms I loe the best: And that's my ain dear Davie!This song is closely aligned with"There Was A Lad" that is sung tothe same tune.Tune:Dainty Davie (140)filename[ DNTDAVEplay.exe DNTDAVEARB===DOCUMENT BOUNDARY===

DAINTY DAVIE
English version
Sean Gibbs-Percival
January 2014

They came to convey the wishes of our Lords
and take our Davie off to war
our fairest son could stay no more
fair the well my Dainty Davie

O leave us where the cherries grow
Dainty Davie, Dainty Davie
to bear the loss we would not know how
For you are our Dainty Davie

So off into hiding he did repair
Amongst the cherry trees withdrew him there
and with one last kiss all full of care
left tormented Dainty Davie

O leave us where the cherries grow
Dainty Davie, Dainty Davie
to bear the loss we would not know how
For you are our Dainty Davie

It was down amongst those quickening trees
concealed from the button men if you please
the lords of war to rare deceive
Our own fair Dainty Davie

O leave us where the cherries grow
Dainty Davie, Dainty Davie
to bear the loss we would not know how
For you are our Dainty Davie

When he was chased by a Dragoon
He held so fast to natures womb
They missed him there all in the gloom
Fortune favoured our Dainty Davie

He left us where the cherries grow
Dainty Davie, Dainty Davie
He is kept safe from the reapers crow
Fortune favoured our Dainty Davie
