Poem by Robert Burns

* * *

MY Harry was a gallant gay,
  Fu stately strade he on the plain!
But now hes banishd far away,
  Ill never see him back again.

  O for him back again!
    O for him back again!
  I wad gie a Knockhaspies land,
    For Highland Harry back again.

When a the lave gae to their bed,
  I wander dowie up the glen;
I sit me down and greet my fill,
  And aye I wish him back again.

O were some villains hangit high,
  And ilka body had their ain,
Then I might see the joyfu sight,
  My Highland Harry back again!
