Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Fate O' Charlie LP- help with lyrics?
My Bonnie Heiland Laddie

When first he landed on our shore, the graceful looks o' that brave laddie
Made every heiland heart ?to warm? & lang to wear the tartan Plaidie
When Geordie heard the news ?belie, that he had come before his Daddy
He 30 thousand pounds would give, to catch him in his tartan plaidie

He sent John Cope unto the nortn, wi' a' his men for battle ready
But Charlie boldly sallied forth, with bonnet blue and belted plaidie
Cope ?raid a race tae Inverness, and found the Prince gane sooth (South) already
Like lion bold ?and uncontrolled, wi' belt and brand and tartan plaidie

Cope turned the chase and left the place, the Lothians was the next land ready
And then he swore at Prestonpans he would disgrace the heiland laddie
Oh my bonny heiland lad, my handsome charming heiland laddie
May Heaven guard and him reward wi' bonnet blue and tartan plaidie
