W:Chorus:
W:I will go, I will go when the fighting is over
W:To the land of McLeod that I left to be a soldier
W:I will go, I will go
W:
W:When the King's son came along he called us all together
W:Saying, "Brave heiland men will you fight for my father?"
W:I will go, I will go
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:I've a buckle on my belt, a sword in my scabbard
W:A red coat on my back, and a shilling in my pocket
W:I will go, I will go
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When they put us all on board, the lassies were singing
W:But the tears came to their eyes, when the bells started ringing
W:I will go, I will go
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When we landed on the shore, and saw the foreign heather
W:We knew that some would fall, and would stay there forever
W:I will go, I will go
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When we came back to the glen, the winter was turning
W:Our goods lay in the snow, and our houses were burning
W:I will go, I will go
W:
W:Chorus
