Gallowa Hills

Lyric as sung by Dick Gaughan

A'll tak ma plaidie contentit tae be
A wee bittie kiltit abune ma knee
A'll gie my pipes anither blaw
An A'll gang out ower the hills tae Gallowa

For the Gallowa hills are covered wi broum
Wi heather bells in bonnie blume
Wi heather bells an rivers aa
An we'll gang out ower the hills tae Gallowa

Say bonnie lassie will ye come wi me
Tae share yer lot in a faur countrie
Tae share yer lot whan doun faas aa
An we'll gang out ower the hills tae Gallowa

A'll sell ma rock, A'll sell ma reel
A'll sell ma grannie's spinnin wheel
A'll sell thaim aa whan doun faas aa
An we'll gang out ower the hills tae Gallowa
