Cauld winds blaw o'er the Meer o' Culloden,
An' they fesh a tear-drap fur yon dool day,
Fan clansmen leal tae the 'R.C.' Pretender,
Howp'd send thur foes on thur way.
Snell reyn an' sleet wis daudin' doon
As they makt attacks in vain .....
Thase mools ye see a' ower the meer
A' belang tae the thoosans slain.
They dee'd bit nae fur gain or fur glory,
Bit tae sair thur faithers' releegious bent;
Thur kittle wis sich wi' Geordie's ambitions
They syne focht as gif Gweed sent.
Bit 'Baul-Cumberland' wi' 'Proddie's strinth
He'd seen happ'd the meer wi' bleed ...
O' chiels sae wearit frae ither fechts
They wur massacred as they flee'd.
