WILLIE MACINTOSH

1. As I came in by Fiddich-side,
On a May morning,
I spied Willie Macintosh,
An hour before the dawning.

Turn again, turn again,
Turn again I bid ye.
If ye burn Auchindoon,
Huntley, he'll behead ye.

'Head me, or hang me,
That will never fear me.
I'll burn Auchindoon,
Before this life, it leaves me.
2. As I came in by Fiddich-side,
On a May morning,
Auchindoon was in a blaze,
An hour before the dawning.

Crawin', crawin',
For a' ye crows a-crawin',
Ye've burnt yer crops,
And tint* yer wings,
An hour before the dawning.


*lost
