214. Song—How Long and Dreary is the Night

 HOW long and dreary is the night,
 When I am frae my dearie!
I sleepless lie frae e’en to morn,
 Tho’ I were ne’er so weary:
I sleepless lie frae e’en to morn,
 Tho’ I were ne’er sae weary!


When I think on the happy days
 I spent wi’ you my dearie:
And now what lands between us lie,
 How can I be but eerie!
And now what lands between us lie,
 How can I be but eerie!


How slow ye move, ye heavy hours,
 As ye were wae and weary!
It was na sae ye glinted by,
 When I was wi’ my dearie!
It was na sae ye glinted by,
 When I was wi’ my dearie!
