I will go, I will go, When the fighting is over,
To the land o McLeod, That I left tae be a soldier,
I will go, I will go, When the fighting is over,
To the land o McLeod, That I left tae be a soldier, I will go, I will go.

  1. When the King's son came along, He called us a' together,
    Saying "Brave Hieland men, Will ye fight for my father?"
    I will go, I will go.
    I will go, I will go, When the fighting is over,
    To the land o McLeod, That I left tae be a soldier,
    I will go, I will go.
  2. I've a buckle on my belt, A sword in my scabbard,
    A red coat on my back, And a shilling in my pocket,
    I will go, I will go.
    I will go, I will go, When the fighting is over,
    To the land o McLeod, That I left tae be a soldier,
    I will go, I will go.
  3. When they put us all on board, The lasses were singing,
    But the tears came tae their eyes, When the bells started ringing,
    I will go, I will go.
    I will go, I will go, When the fighting is over,
    To the land o McLeod, That I left tae be a soldier,
    I will go, I will go.
  4. When we landed on the shore, And saw the foreign heather,
    We knew that some would fall, And would stay there for ever,
    I will go, I will go.
    I will go, I will go, When the fighting is over,
    To the land o McLeod, That I left tae be a soldier,
    I will go, I will go.
  5. When we came back to the glen, The winter was turning,
    Our goods lay in the snow, And our houses were burning
    I will go, I will go.
    I will go, I will go, When the fighting is over,
    To the land o McLeod, That I left tae be a soldier,
    I will go, I will go.
