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!        5
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;        10
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!        15
Then I might see the joyfu’ sight,
  My Highland Harry back again.
      O for him, &c.
