Rankins – Farewell To Lochaber lyrics

to Lochaber Farewell,
to my Jean Where
heartsome with her I have many days been For
Lochaber no more Lochaber
no more We'll
maybe return to Lochaber no more These
tears that I she'd They
are all for my dear And
no for the dangers attending on wier Tho'
born on rough seas To
a far distant shore Maybe
to return to Lochaber no more Tho'
hurricanes rise Tho'
rise every wind No
tempest can equal the storm in my mind Tho'
loudest of thunders On
louder waves roar There's
nothing like leaving my love on that shore To
leave thee behind me My
heart is so pained But
by ease that's inglorious no fame can be gained And
beauty and love's The
reward of the brave And
I maun deserve it before I can crave The
glory my, Jeannie Maun,
plead my excuse Since
honour commands me how, can I refuse Without
it I ne'er Can
have merit for thee And
losing thy favour I'd better not be I
go then my, lass To,
win honour and fame And
if I should chance to come glorious home I'll,
bring a heart to thee With
love running o'er And
then I'll leave thee and Lochaber no more
