Ye Jacobites By Name
Solo Piper and Drummer


Ye Jacobites by name, give an ear, give an ear
Ye Jacobites by name, give an ear
Ye Jacobites by name, your fautes I will proclaim
Your doctrines I mun blame, you shall hear, you shall hear
Your doctrines I mun blame, you shall hear.

What is right and what is wrong, by the law, by the law?
What is right and what is wrong by the law?
What is right and what is wrong, a short sword and a long
A weak arm and a strong for to draw, for to draw
A weak arm and a strong for to draw.

What makes heroic strife famed afar, famed afar?
What makes heroic strife famed afar?
What makes heroic strife, to whet the assassin's knife
Or hunt a parent's life wi' bloody war, bloody war
Or hunt a parent's life wi' bloody war?

Then leave your schemes alone in the state, in the state
Then leave your schemes alone in the state
Then leave your schemes alone, adore the rising sun
And leave a man alone to his fate, to his fate
And leave a man alone to his fate.
