"Bonny" is an instrumental performed by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, based on the traditional Scottish ballad The Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond. Originally recorded by the band in 1976 as "Fling Thing", it was released on the B-side of the "Jailbreak" single, and more recently, on Backtracks.

After the death of the band's original lead singer, Bon Scott, it continued to be featured in the band's live set, arguably as a tribute to him. However, the song is only played at every gig held in Glasgow, Scotland,[1] such as, for example, the show on June 30, 2009 during the band's Black Ice World Tour. A recorded live version of the track with its alternative title of "Bonny" was featured on AC/DC's live album, Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition, recorded at the only Scottish date of the Razors Edge World Tour. Those who listen carefully can hear the fans sing the words. Only Angus Young plays the riff to this song.


Oh, ye'll tak the high road, and I'll tak the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond
