Oh it's o'er the Border awa', awa'
It's o'er the Border awa', awa'
We'll on an' we'll march to Far Point Ha'
Wi' its yetts, its castle an' a', an' a'
Oh oor sodger lads looked braw, looked braw
Wi' their tartan kilts an' a', an' a'
Wi' their bonnets an' feathers an' glistening gear
An' pibrochs sounding loud and clear
Wi' they a' retur to their ain deer glen?
Wi' they a' return our Quivin men?
Second-sight Sandy looked fu' wae
An' mithers grat when they marched away
The esk was swollen sae red an' sae deep
But shoulder to shoulder the brave lads kept
Two thousand swam owre the fall Lunar ground
An' danced themselves dry to the pibroch's sound
Dumbfoundered the Lunars they saw, they saw
Dumbfoundered they heard the blaw, the blaw
Dumbfoundered they a' ran awa', awa'
Frae the hundred pipers an' a', an' a'
