Sing hey my braw John Highlandman!|
Sing Ho my braw John Highlandman!
There's not a lad in a'the lan'
Was match for my John Highlandman!
A Highland lad my love was born,
2. With his philibeg an tartan plaid,
3. We ranged a' from Tweed to Spey,
4. They banished him beyond the sea,|
But ere the bud was on the tree,
Adown my cheeks the pearls ran,
Embracing my John Highlandman.
5. But, och! they catch'd him at the last,
6. And now a widow I must mourn
