lyrics

By yon castle wa' at the close of the day
I heard a man sing though his head it was gray
And as he was singing the tears doon came
There'll never be peace till Jamie cams hame.

The church is in ruins, the state is in jars
Delusion, oppression and murderous wars
We dare na weel say’t but we ken wha's tae blame
There'll never be peace till Jamie cams hame.

My seven braw sons for Jamie drew sword
And noo I greet round their green beds in the yard
It brack the sweet heart o' my faithful old dame
There'll never be peace till Jamie cams hame.

Noo life is a ruin, that bows me doon,
Sin' I tint my bairns, and he tint his croon
But till my last moments, my words are the same
There'll never be peace till Jamie cams hame.
