Bonny Prince Charlie

Bonny Prince Charlie
Came ye by Athol lad wi’ the philabeg,
   Down by the Tummel or banks of the Garry?
Saw ye my lad wi’ his bonnet an' white cockade,
   Leaving his mountains to follow Prince Charlie.
     Charlie, Charlie,  wha wadna follow thee?
        Lang hast thou loved an' trusted us fairly
     Charlie, Charlie, wha wadna follow thee?
        King of the Highland hearts bonny Prince Charlie?
I hae but ae son, my brave young Donald!
   But if I had ten they should follow Glengarry;
Health to M,Donnell and gallant Clan-Ronald,
   For these are the men that will die for their Charlie.
     Charlie, Charlie,  &c.
I’ll to Lochiel, and Appin, and kneel to them;
   Down by Lord Murray, and Roy of Kildarlie;
Brave MackIntosh he shall fly to the field wi' them;
   They are the lads I can trust wi’ my Charlie.
     Charlie, Charlie,  &c.
Down through the lowlands, down wi’ the whigamore,
   Loyal true highlanders, down with them rarely!
Ronald an’ Donald drive on with the broad claymore
   Over the necks of the foes of Prince Charlie.
      Charlie, Charlie, & c.
