"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 as a tribute to him.[citation needed] However, the song is only played at concerts held in Glasgow, Scotland,[1] such as the show on 30 June 2009 during the band's Black Ice World Tour and again on 28 June 2015 during the band's Rock or Bust World Tour. A live version of the track with its alternative title of "Bonny" was included on AC/DC's live album, Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition, recorded at the only Scottish date of the Razors Edge World Tour, with the fans singing 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
