Sound the pibroch loud and high
From John O'Groats to the Isle of Skye!
Let all the Clans their slogan cry
And rise tae follow Charlie!
Chorus:
|: Tha tighin fodham, fodham, fodham :|
Tha tighin fodham, fodham, fodham
To rise and follow Charlie!

2. And see a small devoted band
By dark Loch Shiel have taen their stand
And proudly vow wi' heart and hand
To fight for Royal Charlie!
Chorus:

3. Frae every hill and every glen
Are gatherin' fast the loyal men
They grasp their dirks and shout again
"Hurrah! for Royal Charlie!"
Chorus:

4. On dark Culloden's field of gore
Hark! They shout "Claymore! Claymore!"
They bravely fight what can they more?
They die for Royal Charlie!
Chorus:

5. No more we'll see such deeds again
Deserted is each Highland glen
And lonely cairns are o'er the men
Who fought and died for Charlie!
Chorus:

6. The White Rose blossoms forth again
Deep in sheltered Highland glens
And soon we'll hear the cry we ken
Tae rise! And fight for Charlie!
Chorus:


In the chorus, tha tighin fodham is pronounced HA CHEEN FOAM and means "It comes upon me" or "I have a wish."
