Here 's a health to them that's awa,
An' here's to them that's awa ! Here's to Maitland and Wycombe ; let wha does na like 'em
Be built in a hole in the wa'!
Here's timmer that's red at the heart,
Here 's fruit that is sound at the core, And may he that wad turn the buff and blue coat
Be turn'd to the back o' the door !
Here's a health to them that's awa,
Here's a health to them that's awa! Here's Chieftain M'Leod, a chieftain worth gowd,
Tho' bred amang mountains o' snaw!
Here's friends on baith sides o' the Firth,
And friends on baith sides o'.the Tweed, And wha wad betray old Albion's right,
May they never eat of her bread !
Tune : The
No. 285. Wha in a brulzie.
Scots Musical Museum, 1796, No. 475.
Chorus. Bannocks o' bear meal, Bannocks o' barley; Here^s to the Highlandman's Bannocks o' barley!
Wha in a brulzie
Will first cry a parley ? Never the lads
Wi' the bannocks o' barley.
Wha, in his wae-days, Were loyal to Charlie?
Wha but the lads
Wi' the bannocks o' barley.
