Broadside ballad entitled 'The Highland Soldier'
THE HIGHLAND SOLDIER.
This Popular Song can always be had at the Poet's Box,
Owre yon hills not far awa,
There dwells a lovely maiden,
For they walk so neat and they dress so gay,
I will follow my Highland soldier.
And on yon battlefield I might fall ;
And you sae far from your father's hame
Tae be led by a Highland soldier.
And I've got the, heart worth ten times more,
O, Mary, dear, as you've been so true.
And you've been tender-hearted.
And never more be parted.
