Will ye go to the Indies, my Mary, 
And leave auld Scotia's shore? 
Will ye go to the Indies, my Mary, 
Across th' Atlantic roar? 

O sweet grows the lime and the orange, 
And the apple on the pine; 
But a' the charms o' the Indies 
Can never equal thine. 

I hae sworn by the Heavens to my Mary, 
I hae sworn by the Heavens to be true; 
And sae may the Heavens forget me, 
When I forget my vow! 

O plight me your faith, my Mary, 
And plight me your lily-white hand; 
O plight me your faith, my Mary, 
Before I leave Scotia's strand. 

We hae plighted our troth, my Mary, 
In mutual affection to join; 
And curst be the cause that shall part us! 
The hour and the moment o' time!
