My Heart's In The Highlands

Tune-"Failte na Miosg."

      Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,      The birth-place of Valour, the country of Worth;      Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,      The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.       Chorus.-My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,      My heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;      Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,      My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.       Farewell to the mountains, high-cover'd with snow,      Farewell to the straths and green vallies below;      Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods,      Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.      My heart's in the Highlands, &c.
