Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear, lend an ear!

Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear,
   C                       G
Ye Jacobites by name, your faults I will proclaim,
     Am                                  C               G
Your doctrines I might blame - you shall hear, you shall hear!

V 1:	What is Right, and what is wrong, by the law, by the law?
What is Right, and what is wrong, by the law?
What is Right, and what is Wrong? A short sword and a long,
A weak arm and a strong, for to draw, for to draw!
A weak arm and a strong, for to draw!

Chorus:
Verse 2:	What makes heroic strife, famed afar, famed afar?
What makes heroic strife famed afar?
What makes heroic strife ? To whet th' assassin's knife,
Or hunt a Parent's life, wi bluidy war, bluidy war!
Or hunt a Parent's life, wi bluidy war!

Chorus:
Verse 3:	Then let your schemes alone, in the State, in the State!
Then let your schemes alone, in the State!
Then let your schemes alone, Adore the rising sun,
And leave a man undone, to his fate, to his fate!
And leave a man undone, to his fate!

Chorus:
