Lyrics: 

Away On Yonder Highlands

I packed me grip for a fare thee well trip
Kissed fair Jenny goodbye in the Lowlands
I’m bound said I to the land of the sky
And tis far away on yonder Highlands

The martens roam where there ain’t no sea foam
And deer you can’t count on left and right hand
Me only love may be a turtle dove
For tis far away on yonder Highlands

Where the north wind blows the pure driven snows
And rain and hail they are surely fright’nin
Then I’ll wrap me self in a raindeer coat
Where tis far away on yonder Highlands

Where the wildcat’s wild and the badger’s vile
And the red squirrel has his tail a-widened
Wear me wellies til me feet go smelly
Oh, tis far away on yonder Highlands

Where the red grouse clucks me to sleep at night
And the lapwing roosts when the day is done
I’ll feast on the beef like a Scottish chief
Where tis far away on yonder Highlands

I’m bound said I to the land of the sky
And tis far away on yonder Highlands

As a former Scot, I reeeeeally want to hear the music for this one.
