Broadside ballad entitled 'The Gallant Forty-Twa'
F O R T Y - T W A,
Copies of this popular Song can always he at the Poet's Box,
It's noo I am a sodger, and they ca' me Willie Brown,
Noo, you talk aboot your First Royals, and your Scot-
And your Aberdeen Militia, and your Dundee Volun-
Or any other regiment that's lying far awa,'
But bring to me the tartan of the gallant forty-twa.
Noo, the first day I went to drill wi' I lot o' raw recruits,
For I think you'll make an awfu' mess o' the gallant
Noo, when the bugle sounded for the dinner time,
Noo, when I get a furlough, to Dundee I will gang,
start to blaw,
