MY BONNIE MOORHEN
Traditional

My bonnie moorhen, my bonnie moorhen
Up in the grey hills and doon in the glen
It's when ye gang but the hoose, when ye gang ben
I drink the health o' my bonnie moorhen.
 
My bonnie moorhead has gaed ower the main
And it will be summer when she comes again
When she comes back again some folk will ken
O joy be with thee my bonnie moorhen.
 
My bonnie moorhen has feathers anew
She's a' bricht colours but nane o' them blue
She's red and she's white, and she's green and she's grey
My bonnie moorhen come hither away.
 
Come up by Glen Duich and doon by Glen Dee
And roond by Kinclaven and hither tae me
Ronald and Donald lie low in the fen
Tae brak' the wing o' my bonnie moorhead.
 
My bonnie moorhead has gaed ower the main
And it will be summer when she comes again
When she comes back again some folk will ken
O joy be with thee my bonnie moorhen.
Footnote : A traditional Jacobite song to mark two events during the 1745 Rising which happened this week - the successful return of the retreating Jacobite army to Scotland (20 December 1745) and the overwhelming victory of Lord Lewis Gordon against Hanoverian forces at the Battle of Inverurie ( 23 December 1745). The 'Bonnie Moorhen' was Prince Charles Edward Stewart.
