Leezie Lindsay


Will ye gang tae the highlands, Leezie Lindsay
Will ye gang tae the highlands wi’ me
Will ye gang tae the highlands, Leezie Lindsay
My bride and my darling tae be

Tae gang tae the heilands wi’ you sir,
I dinna ken how that may be
For I ken not the road that I’m going
nor ken I the lad I’m going wi’

Oh Leezie lass, you muan ken little
if you say that ye dinna ken me
For my name is Lord Ronald MacDonald
a cheiftain of high degree

Oh if you are the laird of MacDonald
I great yin I ken you muan be
But how can a cheiftain sae mighty
think o’ a poor lassie like me

Tae gang tae the heilands wi’ you sir
would bring the saut tear tae my e’e
At leaving the green glens and woodlands
and streams o’ my ain country

Oh, I’ll show you the red deer a-roamin’
on mountains where waves the tall pine
And as far as the bound of the red deer
ilk moorland and mountain is mine

A thousand claymores I can muster
ilk blade and its bearer the same
And when round their cheiftain they rally
the gallant MacDonald’s my name

She has gotten a gown of green satin
she has kilted it up tae the knee
And she’s off wi’ Lord Ronald MacDonald
his bride and his darling to be.

There’s dancing and joy in the heilands
there’s piping and gladness and glee
For MacDonald has brought home Leezie Lindsay
his bride and his darlin’ to be
