Charlie is My Darling

[Scenery & Songs Contents]

Charlie is My Darling. 

Arranged by John S. Macgregor. 

– 

Oh! Charlie is my darling, my darling, 

Oh! Charlie is my darling, The young Chevalier. 

– 

‘Twas on a monday morning, 

Right early in the year, 

When Charlie came to our town. 

The young Chevalier. 

– 

Oh! Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling, 

Oh! Charlie is my darling, The young Chevalier. 

– 

As he came marching up the street, 

The pipes play’d loud and clear; 

And a’ the folks came running out 

To meet the Chevalier. 

– 

Oh! Charlie, &c. 

– 

Wi’ Hieland bonnets on their heads, 

And claymores bright and clear; 

they came to fight for Scotland’s right 

And the young Chevalier. 

– 

Oh! Charlie, &c. 

– 

They’ve left their bonny Hieland hills, 

Their wives and bairnies dear; 

To draw the sword for Scotland’s lord, 

The young Chevalier. 

– 

Oh! Charlie, &c. 

– 

Oh! there were mony beating hearts, 

And mony hopes and fears; 

And mony were the pray’rs put up 

For the prince o’ Chevaliers. 

– 

Oh! Charlie, &c.
