Em                             G
Come all ye young lassies whar hae ye been

Sae sleepy and drowsy, I ken by your een

In all the wide world, you'll ne'er find a frien'

Like the lads that were reared among heather


REFRAIN:

G
Awa' wi' yer satins, yer silks and yer shawls
                                            Em
Yer soirees and yer parties and yer elegant balls
                                 G
For a dance in the barn's worth ten in the hall
         C              G           D   G
Wi' the lads that were reared among heather


Em                                  G
Tak' a walk roon yer cities, braw buildings ootside
                                           Em
Gaze on the splendors and the wonder with pride
                                    G
Fine ships have been built, on the banks o' the Clyde
        C              G           D   G
By the lads that were reared among heather



Em                                      G
When the queen wants some soldiers, she kens whaur to send
                                                 Em
To the mountains and valleys, the hills and the glens
                                           G
Wi' their bonnets and plaids, they're aye true tae the end 
          C             G           D   G
Are the lads that were reared among heather




Em                             G
Now England can boast for the sweet-scented rose
                                            Em
And Ireland can boast for the shamrock she grows
                                G
But gi' me the land, where the clear water flows
         C              G          D    G
And the mountains are covered with heather
