The Gallowa' Hills

Line
Melody - Seq. by Barry Taylor
Line

I’ll tak’ my plaidie contented to be,
A wee bittie kilted abune my knee,
An’ I’ll gie my pipes another blaw,
An’ I’ll gang oot o’er the hills tae Gallowa’.
Chorus:
Oh the Gallowa’ hills are covered wi’ broom,
Wi’ heather bells in bonnie bloom,
Wi’ heather bells an’ rivers a’
An’ I’ll gang oot o’er the hills tae Gallowa’.
2. For I say bonnie lassie will ye come wi’ me
Tae share your lot in a far country
For tae share your lot when doon fa’s a’
An’ we’ll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa’.
Chorus:

3. For I’ll sell my rock, an’ I’ll sell my reel,
I’ll sell my granny’s spinning wheel,
I will sell them a’ when doon fa’s a’,
An’ we’ll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa’.
Chorus:
