Standards On The Braes O’ Mar

The standard on the Braes o’ Mar is up and streaming rarely
The gathering pipe on Lochnagar is sounding loud and cleary
The Hieland men, frae hill and glen
Wi marchal hue and bonnet blue
We belted plaids and burnished blades
Are coming late and early

Oor Prince has made a noble vow tae free his country fairly
Wha wid be a traitor noo tae ane we loo sae dearly?
We’ll go, we’ll go and seek the foe
On land or sea, where e’er they be
And man tae man and in the van
We’ll win or die wi’ Cherlie

I saw oor Chief come o’er the hill wi’ Drummond and Glengarry
And through the pass came brave Locheil, Panmure and gallant Murray
MacDonald’s men, Clanranald’s men
MacKenzie’s men, MacGilivery’s men
Strathallen’s men, the Lowland’s men
Callander and Airley

Cry Ronald up and lets awa we can no longer Tarry 

Jamies Back is tae the wall the lad we loo sai dearly

Well go and go and meet the foe 

and fling the blade and swing the blade

over dash and hack and slash 

and play the German hardy.

The standard on the Braes o’ Mar is up and streaming rarely
The gathering pipe on Lochnagar is sounding loud and cleary
The Hieland men, frae hill and glen
Wi marchal hue and bonnet blue
We belted plaids and burnished blades
Are coming late and early
