                                                Come ferry me o'er, come ferry me o'er
                                                Come ferry me o'er to Charlie;
                                                I'll gie John ross anither bawbee
                                                To ferry me o'er to Charlie.
                                                Though Cumberland is marching North,
                                                He'll find we winna parley;
                                                Wi' Lewie Gordon at our head,
                                                We a' will fecht for Charlie.
                                                To deal a blow at good Fa'kirk
                                                 I last did cross the ferry;
                                                Though 'twere to do ten times again,
                                                There's no a man would tarry.
                                                Aboyne is up! Glentanner's up!
                                                And left unsown their barley;
                                                Come here, John Ross! - anither bawbee -
                                                An' ferry me o'er to Charlie!
