Poem by Robert Burns


* * *


COME boat me oer, come row me oer,
  Come boat me oer to Charlie;
Ill gie John Bose another bawbee,
  To boat me oer to Charlie.

  Well oer the water and oer the sea,
    Well oer the water to Charlie;
  Come weal, come woe, well gather and go,
    And live or die wi Charlie.

I loe wee my Charlies name,
  Tho some there be abhor him:
But O, to see auld Nick gaun hame,
  And Charlies face before him

I swear and vow by moon and stars,
  And sun that shines so clearly,
If I had twenty thousand lives,
  Id die as aft for Charlie.

  Well oer the water and oer the sea,
    Well oer the water to Charlie;
  Come weal, come woe, well gather and go,
    And live or die with Charlie!
