Montrose (words & Music .Dave Gilfillan)

Oh Montrose oh Montrose 

they say that ye dance well

There are those who will never rest

Until ye dance in hell

In Aberdeen and Tippermuir

They remember you where there

In alderdearn And killside muir

Ye played them very sair

The bold Argyle he rued the day

In the Inverlocky field

And ye chased him frae his castle

And yer fate was surely sealed

Ye held this land within yer hand

North South East and West

Six thousand men on Kilsyth field

Ye left them their to rest

In Leslie ye met yer match

In the rout of Philiphaugh 

And Invercarron saw the end 

In The bloody field of gore

And there ye stand on gallows high

In Edinburgh toon

And yer foes in the high street thrang

Tae see ye tumbling doon

Oh Montrose oh Montrose 

they say that ye dance well

There are those who will never rest

Until ye dance in hell

Oh Montrose oh Montrose 

They sae that your in hell

If there’s any man who surely can

You’ll be dancing there as well
