Mirk and rainy is the nicht [night], There's no a star in a' the carry; Lightnings gleam athwart the lift, And the cauld winds drive wi' winter's fury. Chorus: O! are ye sleepin', Maggie? O! are ye sleepin', Maggie? Let me in, for loud the linn Is roarin' o'er the warlock craigie! Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank, The rifted wood roars wild and drearie, Loud the iron yett does clank, And the cry o' howlets makes me eerie. Chorus Aboon my breath I daurna speak For fear I rouse your waukrife daddie; Cauld's the blast upon my cheek, - Arise, arise, my bonnie lady! Chorus She op'd the door, she let him in; He coost aside his dreepin' plaidie; Blaw your warst, ye rain and win', Since, Maggie, now I'm in aside ye. Final Chorus: Now since ye're waukin', Maggie, Now since ye're waukin', Maggie, What care I for howlet's cry, For boortree bank, or warlock craigie?
