Hieland Sodger
Traditional

High up amang yon Hieland hills
There lives a canny maiden
She’s gone out one fine summer’s night
To watch all the soldiers paradin’
Chorus:

And they looked sae braw as they marched awa’
The drums they did rattle and the pipes they did blaw
Which caused young Mary for to weep and say
I (will) follow my Hieland sodger

(Ah) But Mary dear my wage (it) is small
And what if in battle I should fall
I hae to gang hame to your Hieland hall
Theink nae mair on a soldier laddie!

Chorus

Ah I hae twenty pounds in store
And I gae a herd about ten times more
I’ll gi’em to the laddie I adore
And I’ll follow my Hieland laddie

Chorus
