Lyrics

A Highland lad my love was born
The lowland laws he held in scorn
But he still was faithful to his clan
My gallant braw John Highlandman

Chorus
Sing hey, my braw John Highlandman
Sing ho, my braw John Highlandman
There’s no’ a lad in a’ the lan’
Was match wi’ my John Highlandman

With his philabeg and his tartan plaid
And his good claymore doon by his side
The ladies’ hearts he did trepan
My gallant braw John Highlandman

Chorus

They banished him beyond the sea
But ere the bud was on the tree
Adoon my cheeks the pearls they ran
Embracing my John Highlandman
