[Verse]
FOft have I played at the cards and dice
G F GWith my bonnie Rantin' Laddie
F G CBut now I'm a-sitting in my father's hall

FOh, if I'd been wise as I've been nice
G F GAnd done what my bonnie lad told me

G F GAnd the servants, they quite hate me
[Verse]
FIs your love a lord or is he a laird
G F GOr is he but a caddie
F G CThat you so oft call on his name
G F GYour bonnie Rantin' Laddie
[Verse]
FIf I had a horse at my command
G F GAs oft times I've had many
F G CI'd ride away to the gates of Aboyne

G F GSaying, "Though I'm but a caddie
F G CIt's I will run to the Gates of Aboyne
G F GWith a letter to your Rantin' Laddie"

FAnd as he ran through Buchanshire
G F GAnd Buchan shone so bonnie
F G CThere he met with the Earl of Aboyne
G F GThat they call the Rantin' Laddie

G F GTo out bonnie Rantin' Lassie"

G F GMy mother she ignores me
F G CMy friends and relations slight me all
G F GAnd the servants, they quite hate me

FWhen she was up behind his back
G F GWrapped in her hieland plaidie
F G CThe birds in the trees sang never so sweet
G F GAs the bonnie Rantin' Lassie
[Verse]
FAnd they rode on through Buchanshire
G F GAnd Buchan shone so bonnie
F G CRejoice, rejoice ye bonnie maids all
G F GAn' see that ye be not sorry
[Verse]
FIf you lay your love on a lowland lad
G F GBe sure that he'll betray ye
F G CBut lay your love on a hieland lad
G F GHe'll do all that he can to raise ye
