rolling hills of the borders carmondean

The song on this page is The Rolling Hills Of The Borders, written by Matt McGinn and sung by Carmondean Folkscene.

CHORUS When I die, bury me low
Where I can hear the bonnie Tweed flow
A sweeter place I never will know
Than the rolling hills of the Borders

1. I travelled far and wandered wide
I’ve seen the Hudson and the Clyde
I wandered by Loch Lomond’s side
But I dearly love the Borders

CHORUS

2.Oft do I remember the day
When wi’ my love I strolled by the Tay
But all its beauty fades away
Among the hills of the Borders

CHORUS

3.There’s a certain peace of mind
Bonnie lassies there you will find
Men so strong and men so kind
Among the hills of the Borders

CHORUS

The rolling hills of the Borders
