My Heart's in the Highlands
FAREWELL to the Highlands, farewell to the North,
The birthplace of valour, the country of worth!
Wherever I wander, wherever I roam,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.
My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here.
My heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer,
A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe--
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go!
Farewell to the mountains, high-cover'd with snow,
Farewell to the straths and green valleys below,
Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods,
Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods!
