No. 283. When we gaed to the braes o' Mar.
Tune: Up, andwarn d, Willie Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 188.
Chorus. Up, and warn a1, Willie, Warn, warn a'; To hear my canty Highland sang Relate the thing I saw, Willie.
When we gaed to the braes o' Mar, And to the weapon-shaw, Willie ; Wi' true design to serve the king And banish Whigs avra, Willie. Up, and warn a', Willie, Warn, warn a'; For lords and lairds came there bedeen, And wow! but they were braw, Willie.
But when the standard was set up,
Right fierce the wind did blaw, Willie, The. royal nit upon the tap
Down to the ground did fa', Willie. Up, and warn a', Willie, Warn, warn a' ; Then second-sighted Sandie said We'd do nae gude at a', Willie.
But when the army join'd at Perth, The bravest e'er ye saw, Willie,
We didna doubt the rogues to rout, Restore our king and a', Willie.
