Killiecrankie
Tune: An' ye had been where I hae been


Chorus:
An ye had been whar I hae been,
Ye wad na been sae cantie, O!
An ye had seen what I hae seen
On the braes o' Killecrankie, O!

'Whar hae ye been sae braw, lad?
Whare hae ye been sae brankie, O?
Whare hae ye been sae braw, lad?
Cam ye by Killiecrankie, O? '

'I faught at land, I faught at sea,
At hame I faught my auntie, O;
But I met the Devil and Dundee
On the braes o' Killiecrankie, O.

'The bauld Pitcur fell in a furr,
An' Clavers gat a clankie, O,
Or I had fed an Athole gled
On the braes o' Killiecrankie, O!'
