KILLIECRANKIE (x2V)

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?

CHORUS
An' ye haed bin whaur I hae bin
Ye wudna bin sae cantie-o
An' ye haed seen wha I hae seen
On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o

I fought at land, I fought at sea
At hame I fought my auntie-o
But I met the Devil and Dundee
On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o

The bauld pitcur fell in a furr
And Clavers gat a crankie-o
Or I haed fed an Athol gled
On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o

Oh fie, MacKay, Whit gart ye lie
In the brush ayont the brankie-o?
Ye'd better kiss'd King Willie's loff
Than come tae Killiecrankie-o

Ther's nae shame, ther's nae shame
Ther's nae shame tae shank ye-o
Ther's sour slaes on Athol braes
And the de'ils at Killiecrankie-o
