GUEST,Len Wallace Lyr Req: Battle of Prestonpans (Roy Williamson) (14) Lyr. req: Sherrifmuir/Sheramoor 28 Jul 00

Hello Friends,

I'm searching for the lyrics of a song once sung by The Corries, about the battle at Sherrifmiur or Sheramoor.

I don't mean the Robbie Burns song of the battle, but another one.

One of the lines reads (I think):

General Cope left Fray behind to keep his men in order When the English ran he was in the van and first across the border.

Another line about about "some wet their cheeks, some filled their breeks, and some lay doon like deid, man"

Thanks for your help.
