KILLIECRANKIE
Robert Burns
 

 
                                               Whare hae ye been sae braw, lad ?
                                               Whare hae ye been sae brankie, O ?
                                               Whare hae ye been sae braw, lad ?
                                               Cam ye by Killiecrankie, O ?
 
                                               Chorus ;
                                               An ye had been whare I hae been,
                                               Ye wad na been sae cantie, O ;
                                               An ye had seen what I hae seen,
                                               On the braes o Killiecrankie, O.
 
                                               I foucht at land, I foucht at sea ;
                                               At hame I foucht my auntie, O ;
                                               But I met the Devil and Dundee,
                                               On the braes o Killiecrankie, O.
 
                                               The bauld Pitcur fell in a furr,
                                               An' Clavers gat a clankie, O ;    
                                               Or I had fed an Athole gled,
                                               On the braes o Killiecrankie, O.
 
Footnote - The Battle of Killiecrankie, 27 July 1689, resulted in an overwhelming Jacobite victory but their leader, John Graham of Claverhouse, Viscount Dundee ( Bonnie Dundee ), was fatally wounded.
