Will Ye No' Come Back Again

  • (Neil Gow / Lady Nairne)

    Bonnie Chairlie's noo awa',
    Safely ower the friendly main.
    Mony a he'rt will break in twa,
    Shouldhe ne 'er come back again.

    Will ye no' come back again?
    Will ye no'come back again?
    Better lo 'ed ye canna be,
    Will ye no'come back again?

    Ye trusted in your Hielan' men,
    They trusted you dear Chairlie.
    They kent your hidin' in the glen,
    Death or exile bravin'.

    We watched thee in the gloamin' hour,
    We watched thee in the mornin' grey.
    Tho' thirty thousand pounds they gie,
    O there is nane that wad betray.

    Sweet the laverock' s note and lang,
    Liltin' wildly up the glen.
    But aye tae me he sings ae sang,
    Will ye no' come back again?
