about

All Scottish musicians give a nod to the national bard at one point or another; this is our effort that has won us claps, cheers and chants wherever we have travelled. We have even given you the live version so you know exactly what to expect if you fancied coming along to see us!

lyrics

Twas on a Monday morning right early in the year,
when Charlie came to our town; the young chevalier.


Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young chevalier.


As he was walking doon the street the city for to view;

o’ there he spied a bonie lass the windae peekin’ through. 


Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young chevalier.


So light he jumped up the stair, and tirl’d at the pin

And wha’s sae ready but herself, to let the laddie in? 


Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young Chevalier.


He set his Jenny on his knee all in his highland dress.

For brawly weel he kent the way, to please a highland lass.


Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young chevalier.



It’s up yon heathery mountain and down yon scroggie glen.
We daurnae gang a-milking for Charlie and his men.


Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young chevalier.

Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young chevalier.

Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young chevalier.

Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling.

Charlie is my darling, the young chevalier.
