VII. PATRIOTIC AND POLITICAL              241
Chorus. My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here, My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer, A-chasing the wild deer and following the roe My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.
Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North, The birthplace of valour, the country of worth ; Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.
Farewell to the mountains high cover'd with snow, Farewell to the straths and green vallies below, Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods, Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods!
