The Gallowa Hills. (Trad.)

I’ll tak’ my plaidie contented tae be,
And wear my kilt aboone my knee,
I’ll gie my pipes another blaw,
An’d we’ll gang it ower the hills tae gallowa’.

Chorus

For the gallowa hills are covered wi’ broom,
Wi’ heather bells in bonnie bloom,
Wi’ heather bells aye and rivers braw
And we’ll gang it over the hills tae gallowa.

Hi bonnie lassie will ye come wi’ me
And share your lot in a far country
Share yer lot when doon fa’s a’
And we’ll gang it over the hills tae gallowa


Chorus

I’ll sell my rod, i’ll sell my reel,
I’ll sell my granny’s spinning wheel,
I ll sell them a’ when doon fa’s a’,
And we’ll gang it ower the hills tae gallowa.

Chorus.
