Roamin' In The Gloamin'
|"Roamin' In The Gloamin'"|
Cover, sheet music, 1911
"Roamin' In The Gloamin'" is a popular love song written by Sir Harry Lauder in 1911. The song tells of a man and his sweetheart courting in the evening. The title comes from the chorus:
- Roamin' in the gloamin' on the bonnie banks o' Clyde.
- Roamin' in the gloamin' wae my lassie by my side.
- When the sun has gone to rest,
- That's the time we love the best.
- O, it's lovely roamin' in the gloamin.!
The song was a hit for Lauder in both his music hall shows and his 1912 recording. It has been recorded numerous times since.
