The Gallowa' Hills

  • (trad)
  • Oh, I'll tak' my plaidie contented tae be,
    A wee bittie kilted abune my knee,
    An' I'II gie my pipes anither blaw,
    An' I'll gang oot ower tbe hills tae Gallowa'.

       Chorus:

       Oh the Gallowa' hills are covered wi' broom,
       Wi' heather bells, in bonnie bloom.
       Wi' heather bells an' rivers a'
       An' I'll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa'.

    For I say bonnie lass it's will ye come wi' me
    Tae share your lot in a strange country
    For tae share your lot when doon fa's a'
    An' I'II gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa'.

        Chorus ...

    For I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel,
    I'll sell my granny's spinning wheel,
    I will sell them a' when doon fa's a',
    An' I'll gang oot ower the hills tae Gallowa'.

       Chorus ...
