MIDI File

Chorus: The white and the red! Huzzah!
The white and the red for aye!
From crag and glen come the Highland-men,
The Sassenach's had his day.
Tartan and targe to the fore, lads,
King George shall come to grief;
Let claymores all be swift to strike,
For bold Rob Roy our chief.
So March!
March! March! Ettrick and Teviotdale,
Why, my lads, dinna ye march for'd in order?
March! March! Eksdale and Liddesdale,
All the blue bonnets are over the border.
Harrah! Hurrah!
Sopranos: Ho! Rob Roy!
Men: Ho! Rob Roy!
All: Our chief!
Rob Roy: Where eagles nest on mountains' crest
Lives Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, the King of the Highlands.
Chorus: With pipers blawing, and claymores drawing,
The Lowland's awing come clansmen all.
Rob Roy: My sword belongs to all with wrongs,
My name carries terror to far lands and nigh lands,
To main lands and island, all fear.
Rob Roy am I, laws I defy,
Wooing all danger, falchion in hand.
My brave clan all to a man,
Rover and ranger, war on the stranger,
Peril share with me, do and dare with me,
Who'll fight fair with me, bold Rob Roy?
All: Our chief!
Rob Roy: I have no wealth but sword and health,
But woe to him, woe to him who shall gain-say me:
Chorus: We're bold marauders of Lowland borders,
We take no orders from Prince or King.
Rob Roy: As torrents leap down mountains steep
I rush with my followers, nothing can stay me,
Not one would betray me, his chief.
Rob Roy am I, laws I defy,
Wooing all danger, falchion in hand.
My brave clan all to a man,
Rover and ranger, war on the stranger,
Peril share with me, do and dare with me,
Who'll fight fair with me, bold Rob Roy?
Sopranos: Bold and free,
All: Valiant is he, wooing all danger
Rover and ranger;
Rob Roy: Peril share with me, do and dare with me,
Who'll fight fair with me, bold Rob Roy?
