Balnagowan

Whaur hae ye been sae braw, lad?
Whaur hae ye been sae brankie-o?
Whaur hae ye been sae braw, lad?
Come 'ye by Balnagowan-o

Ch:
An' ye had been whaur I hae been
Ye wadna been sae cantie-o
An' ye had seen what I hae seen
On the braes o' Balnagowan-o

I fought at land, I fought at sea
At hame I fought my auntie-o
But I met the Formor and Akari
On the braes o' Balnagowan-o

Ch.

The bauld pit cur fell in a furr
And Bruid gave a crankie-o
Or I had fed an Athol gled
On the braes o' Balnagowan-o

Ch.

Oh fie, MacKay, What gart ye lie
I' the brush ayont the brankie-o?
Ye'd better kiss'd the High Kings lofe
Than come tae Balnagowan-o

Ch.

It's nae shame, it's nae shame
It's nae shame to shank ye-o
There's sour slaes on Athol braes
And the formors at Balnagowan-o

Ch. x2

Þaðan koma meyjar margs vitandi þrjár ór þeim sæ, er und þolli stendr;
Urð hétu eina, aðra Verðandi, skáru á skíði, Skuld ina þriðju;
þær lög lögðu, þær líf kuru alda börnum, örlög seggja. - Völuspá
