Maxwellton braes are bonnie,
Where early fa's the dew,
And it's there that Annie Laurie
Gied me her promise true.
Gied me her promise true,
Which ne'er forgot will be,
For bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay my doon and dee.

Her brow is like the snowdrift,
Her neck it's like the swan,
Her face it is the fairest,
That e'er the sun shone on.
That e'er the sun shone on.
And dark blue is her eye,
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay my doon and dee.
Annie Laurie was born on 16 December of 1682.  The original poem was written by William Douglas of England around 1700.  It then improved and extended by Lady John Douglas Scott (1810~1900) of Berwickshire, Scotland, who also wrote the music around 1834~1835.

Maxwellton braes are bonnie,
Where early fa's the dew,
And it's there that Annie Laurie
Gied me her promise true.
Gied me her promise true,
Which ne'er forgot will be,
For bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay my doon and dee.

Like dew on the gowan lying,
Is the fa' of her fairy feet,
And like wind in summer sighing,
Her voice is low and sweet.
Her voice is low and sweet,
She's a' the world to me,
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay my doon and dee.

Maxwellton braes are bonnie,
Where early fa's the dew,
And it's there that Annie Laurie
Gied me her promise true.
Gied me her promise true,
Which ne'er forgot will be,
For bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay my doon and dee.
