286. Song—Highland Harry back again

 MY Harry was a gallant gay,
 Fu’ stately strade he on the plain;
But now he’s banish’d far away,
 I’ll never see him back again.
Chorus.
—O for him back again! O for him back again! I wad gie a’ Knockhaspie’s land For Highland Harry back again.
When a’ the lave gae to their bed, I wander dowie up the glen; I set me down and greet my fill, And aye I wish him back again.
O for him, &c.
O were some villains hangit high, And ilka body had their ain! Then I might see the joyfu’ sight, My Highland Harry back again.
O for him, &c.
