  1. Waur hae ye been sae braw me lad?
    Waur has ye been sae brankie-o?
    Waur hae ye been sas braw me lad?
    Cam ye by Killiecrankie-o.
    An ye hae been wha I hae been,
    Ye wouldnae been sae cantie-o,
    An ye hae seen wha I hae seen,
    On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o.
  2. Oh I fought at land, I fought at sea,
    At haem I fought my auntie-o,
    But I met the Devil and Dundee,
    On the braes o Killiecrankie-o.
    An ye hae been wha I hae been,
    Ye wouldnae been sae cantie-o,
    An ye hae seen wha I hae seen,
    On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o.
  3. The bold Pictur fell with a fawr
    And Claver’se got a clankie-o,
    And I hae fled an Atholl gled,
    On the braes o‘Killieorankie-o
    An ye hae been wha I hae been,
    Ye wouldnae been sae cantie-o,
    An ye hae seen wha I hae seen,
    On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o.
  4. O fie Mackay was gart ye lie,
    In the bush ayond the brankie-o
    Ye'd better kiss King Willie's boot,
    Than cam by Killiecrankie-o.
    An ye hae been wha I hae been,
    Ye wouldnae been sae cantie-o,
    An ye hae seen wha I hae seen,
    On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o.
  5. There’s nae shame, there's nae shame
    There's nae shame tae swankie-o,
    There’s soor slaes on Atholl braes,
    An the De'il's at Killiecrankie-o
    An ye hae been wha I hae been,
    Ye wouldnae been sae cantie-o,
    An ye hae seen wha I hae seen,
    On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o
