Melody - Seq. by Lesley Nelson

High upon the Hielands and laigh upon the Tay
Bonnie George Campbell rode out on a day
Saddled and bridled and gallant rode he
Hame cam his guide horse, but niver came he.

2. Saddled and bridled and booted rode he
A plume in his bonnet, a sword at his knee
But toom cam his saddle all bloody tae see
Hame came his guide horse but niver came he.

3. Oot cam his auld mithir, greetin' fo'sair
Oot came his bonnie wife, reivin' her hair
"My meadow lies green and the corn is unshorn
My barn is tae build and my babe is unborn!"

4. High upon the Hielands and laigh upon the Tay
Bonnie George Campbell rode out on a day
Saddled and bridled and gallant rode he
Hame cam his guide horse, but niver came he.
