BONNIE CHARLIE'S GONE AWA'. AKA and see "Bonnie Charlie (3)," "Will Ye No' Come Back Again." Scottish, New England; March (4/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The tune is not related to "Bonnie Charlie" [1] or [2], but is rather the air "Will Ye No' Come Back Again," here taking its title from the first line:

Bonnie Charlie's gone away
Safely o’er the friendly main;
Many’s a heart will break in twain,
Should he ne'er come back again.
Will ye no come back again?
Will ye no come back again?
Better loved ye canna be,

Printed source: Laufman (Okay, Let's Try a Contra, Men on the Right, Ladies on the Left, Up and Down the Hall), 1973; p. 11.
