Killiecrankie

Traditional. Arrangement The Black Family / Johnny MacCarthy

When I was young I used to be
As fine as a lad as you could see
the Prince of Wales invited me
To come and join his army

Chorus

Too ra loo ra loo ra loo
She's as sweet as honeydew
Too ra loo ra loo ra loo
The Lass from Killiecrankie

Now I'm old and getting frail
Just like a dog without a tail
All for the sake of Jane MacNeil
The Lass from Killiecrankie

Chorus

One day as at the door I sat
And as she passed I raised my hat
And because her little nose was wet
I offered her my hankie

Chorus

Jane, says I,you're looking smart
And wouldn''t you take a chance at that
She smiled and nearly broke my heart
The Lass from Killiecrankie

Chorus

I nearly fell down to my knees
John McFee,she says to me
Would you like to spend an hour or three Upon your darlin's hankie

Chorus

Very soon I jump up
For on a thistle I sat down
And nearly jumped o'er the banks
And braes of Killiecrankie
