27 July, 1689, and by Robert Burns, 1789 - first three verses
Whaur hae ye been sae braw, lad?|
Whaur hae ye been sae brankie-o?
Whaur hae ye been sae braw, lad?
Cam' ye by Killiecrankie-o?
An' ye had been whaur I hae been
Ye wadna been sae cantie-O
An' ye had seen what I hae seen
I' the braes o' Killiecrankie-O.
2. I faught at land, I faught at sea,
3. The bauld Pitcur fell in a furr,|
An' Clavers gat a crankie-O
Or I had fed an Atholl gled
On the braes o' Killiecrankie-O.
4. Oh fie, MacKay, What gart ye lie
5. It's nae shame, it's nae shame
