The bonny Earl o' Moray

Language: English

Ye Hielands and ye Lowlands,
O where hae ye been?
Thay hae slain the Earl o' Moray,
And laid him on the green.

He was a braw gallant
And he rade at the ring;
And the bonnie Earl o' Moray
He might have been a king.

O lang will his Lady
Look frae the Castle Doune,
Ere she see the Earl o' Moray
Come soundin' thru' the toon . . .

O wae tae ye, Huntley,
And wherefore did ye sae?
I bade ye bring him wi' you
And forbade ye him to slay.

He was a braw gallant
And he played at the glove;
And the bonnie Earl o' Moray
He was the Queen's love.
