THE GALLOWA' HILLS
Traditional

Oh, I'll tak my plaidie contented tae be,
A wee bittie kilted abune my knee,
An' I'll gie my pipes anither blaw,
An' I'll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa' .

Chorus:
Oh the Gallowa' hills are covered wi broom,
Wi heather bells, in bonnie bloom.
Wi heather bells an' rivers a' ,
An' I'll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa' .

For I say bonnie lass it's will ye come wi me
Tae share your lot in a strange country
For tae share your lot when doun fa's a' 
An' I'll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa' .

For I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel,
I'll sell my granny's spinning wheel,
I will sell them a' when doun fa's a' ,
An' I'll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa' .

Footnote:  A very popular sing-along song during the Scottish folk Revival.
