lyrics

As I cam in by Fiddichside
On a May morning
I spied Willie MacIntosh
An hour before the dawning

Turn again, turn again
Turn again I bid ye
If you burn Auchindoun
Huntly he will heid ye.

Heid me, hang me
That shall never fear me
I'll burn Auchindoun
Though the life leaves me.

As I cam in by Auchindoun
On a May morning
Auchindoun was in a bleeze
An hour before the dawning

Crawing, crawing,
For a' your crouse crawin'
Ye burnt your crops and ye tint your wings
An hour before the dawning.
