 "Will ye gang tae the hielands, Lizzie Lindsay,
 Will ye gang tae the hielands wi' me?
 Will ye gang tae the hielands, Lizzie Lindsay,
 My bride and my darling to be?"

 Then I spoke tae Lizzie's old mother,
 And a cantie old body was she,
 "Mon, if I was as young as my daughter,
 I'd gang tae the hielands wi' thee."

 Then I spoke tae Lizzie's wee sister,
 And a bonnie wee lassie was she,
 "Mon, if I was as old as my sister,
 I'd gang tae the hielands wi' thee."

 "But to gang to the hielands wi' you, sir,
 I dinna ken who that may be,
 For I ken no' the land that you live in,
 Nor I ken no' the lad I'm goin' wi'."

 "Oh, Lizzie, I  you maun ken little,
 When I see that you dinna ken me,
 My name is Lord Ranald McDonald,
 I'm the chief of the highland degree."

 So she kilted her coats of green satin,
 And she kilted them up to her knee,
 And she's of wi' Lord Ranald McDonald
 His bride and his darling tae be.
