Macpherson's Lament Lyrics

Farewell ye dungeons dark and strong
The wretch's destiny
MacPherson's life will no' be long
On yonder gallows tree

Sae rantingly, sae wantonly
Sae dauntingly gaed he
He played a tune and he danced aroon
Below the gallows tree

Oh what is death but parting breath
On mony's the blood plain
I've seen his face and in this place
I scorn him yet again

Sae rantingly, sae wantonly
Sae dauntingly gaed he
He played a tune and he danced aroon
Below the gallows tree

I've lived a life of grief and strife
I die by treachery
But it breaks my heart, I must depart
And not avengád be

Gae take these bonds from off my hands
And bring tae me my sword
And there's no' a man in all Scotland
But I'd brave him at his word

So farewell strife and sunshine bright
And all beneath the sky
May coward shame disdain the name
O' the wretch that dare not die

Sae rantingly, sae wantonly
Sae dauntingly gaed he
He played a tune and he danced aroon
Below the gallows tree
