Can you hear them, can you see them
Marching proudly across the moor,
Hear the wind blow thru the drifting snow,
Tell me can you see them, the ghosts of Culloden.

Many bravely fought and sadly they were slain,
But they died with such pride and dignity,
Their lives were not in vain,
We still remember them,
They fought to save their land, and died for liberty.


Thru the mist you'll hear - a lonely piper play,
Listen carefully - you'll hear - a mournful cry,
Swords and bayonets crash - as man to man they clash,
They came to fight to live - and now they die.

    Puedes escucharlos,puedes verlos
    marchando orgullosos a traves del paramo
    escucha el viento soplar a travez de la nieve
    dime si puedes ver a los fantasmas de culloden

    Muchos valientes pelearon y tristemente ellos fueronmuertos
    pero murieron con orgullo y dignidad
    sus vidas no fueron en vano
    nosotros aun los recordamos
    ellos pelearon para salvar a su tierra, y murieron por la libertad
    a traves de la niebla los escucharas, un solitario gaitero tocar,
    escucha atentamente-tu escucharas- un grito de lamento
    espadas y bayonetas golpear-asi como hombre con hombre caer
    ellos vinieron a luchar para vivir-y ahora ellos mueren
