lyrics

My love's in Germanie
Send him hame, send him hame
My love's in Germanie
Send him hame.
My love's in Germanie
Fighting brave for royalty
He may ne'er his Jeannie see
Send him hame, send him hame
He may ne'er his Jeannie see
Send him hame.

He's brave as brave can be
Send him hame, send him hame
He's brave as brave can be
Send him hame.
He's brave as brave can be
He wad rather fa' than flee
In the cause o' loyalty
Send him hame, send him hame
In the cause of loyalty
Send him hame.

His faes are ten tae three
Send him hame, send him hame
His faes are ten tae three
Send him hame.
His faes are ten tae three
He maun either fa' or flee
In the cause o' loyalty
Send him hame, send him hame
In the cause o' loyalty
Send him hame.

Your love ne'er learned tae flee
Bonnie dame, winsome dame
Your love ne'er learned tae flee, winsome dame.
Your love ne'er learned tae flee
But he fell in Germanie
Fighting brave for royalty,
Bonnie dame, mournfu' dame
Fighting brave for royalty
Mournfu' dame.

He'll ne'er come o'er the sea
Willie's slain, Willie's slain
He'll ne'er come o'er the sea
Willie's gane.
He'll ne'er come o'er the sea
To his love and ain countrie
This world's nae more for me
Willie's slain, Willie's slain
This world's nae more for me
Willie's gane.
