The Highland Balou
written in 1794
Hee-balou, my sweet, wee Donald, Picture o' the great Clanronald; Brawlie kens our wanton Chief Wha gat my wee Highland thief. Leeze me on thy bonie craigie, And thou live, thou'll steal a naigie, Travel the country thro' and thro', And bring hame a Carlisle cow. Thro' the Lawlands, o'er the Border, Weel, my babie, may thou furder: Herry the louns o' the laigh Countrie, Syne to the Highlands hame to me.
