Child #181 version from Ramsay's Tea-Table Miscellany, 1750
Ye Highlands, and ye lawlands,
Oh where have ye been?
They have slain the Earl of Murray,
And they layd him on the green.

"Now wae be to thee, Huntly!
And wherefore did you see?
I bade you bring him wi' you,
But forbade you him to slay."

He was a braw gallant,
And he rid at the ring;
And the bonny Earl of Murray,
Oh he might have been a king!
He was a braw gallant,
And he play'd at the ba';
And the bonny Earl of Murray
Was the flower among them a'.

He was a braw gallant,
And he play'd at the glove;
And the bonny Earl of Murray,
Oh he was the Queen's love!

Oh lang will his lady
Look o'er the castle Down,
Eer she see the Earl of Murray
Come sounding thro the town!
