Killiecrankie

Melody - Seq. by Barry Taylor

27 July, 1689, and by Robert Burns, 1789 - first three verses

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 had been whaur I hae been
Ye wadna been sae cantie-O
An' ye had seen what I hae seen
I' the braes o' Killiecrankie-O.

2. I faught at land, I faught at sea,
At hame I faught my Auntie-O;
But I met the Devil an' Dundee,
On the braes o' Killiecrankie-O.
Chorus

3. The bauld Pitcur fell in a furr,
An' Clavers gat a crankie-O
Or I had fed an Atholl gled
On the braes o' Killiecrankie-O.
Chorus

4. Oh fie, MacKay, What gart ye lie
I' the brush ayont the brankie-o?
Ye'd better kiss King Willie's loof
Than come tae Killiecrankie-o
Chorus

5. It's nae shame, it's nae shame
It's nae shame t' shank ye-o
There's sour slaes on Athol braes
An the De'ils at Killiecrankie-o
Chorus
