YE JACOBITES BY NAME


Chorus

Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear, lend an ear!
Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear,
Ye Jacobites by name,
Your faults I will proclaim,
Your doctrines I maun blame - you will hear, you will hear!
Your doctrines I maun blame - you will hear!


***********

What is Right, and what is wrang, by the law, by the law?
What is Right, and what is Wrang, by the law?
What is Right, and what is Wrang?
A short sword and a lang,
A weak arm and a strang, for to draw! For to draw!
A weak arm and a strang, for to draw!

***********

What makes heroic strife, famed afar, famed afar?
What makes heroic strife famed afar?
What makes heroic strife ?
To whet th' assassin's knife,
Or hunt a Parent's life, wi bluidy war! Bluidy war!
Or hunt a Parent's life, wi bluidy war!

***********

Then let your schemes alone, in the State, in the State!
Then let your schemes alone, in the State!
Then let your schemes alone,
Adore the rising sun,
And leave a man undone, to his fate! to his fate!
And leave a man undone, to his fate!

***********
