(The Highland Charge)
Brave Lochiel and bold MacGregor
Charged the scarlet ranks and squarely
Saw them off wi’ dirk and broadsword
Oh did ye ca’ be Prestoun’s wa’s

(The Redcoat Massacre)
Atholl Ranald and Glengarry
Broke the Hanoverian army
Cowed them a and beat them squarely
Oh did ye fell by Prestoun’s wa’s

(The Death of Colonel Gardiner)
Saw their colonel standing bravely
Like a rock ‘mang cowardly knavery
Ca’ed him doon and wouded sairly
Oh did ye fell by Prestoun’s wa’s
