Farewell to the Highlands! farewell to the north!
The birth- v'ace of valour, the country of worth;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills o' the Highlands for ever I love.

Farewell to the straths and green vallies below.
Farewell to the forests and wild- hanging-woods.
Farewell to the torrents and loud-|>ouring- floods
