Reel 347, Item 2
The Bonny Earl of Murray
("Vance is going to sing a song that he learned from his father, Mr. John Randolph, which he learned from his family. With a smile on his face, he said that this song probably had something to do with the ancestors of the Randolph family." MH)
Oh, ye Highlands and ye Lowlands,
Oh where have you been?
They ha' slain the Earl of Moray And laid him on the green.
Oh, long and long will his lady look From out her castle down,
Ere she'll see the Earl of Moray Come sounding through the town.
(I forgot a line here. If I ever knew it, I've forgotten it. But here's the way it goes from here on.)
And he rode at the ring,
Oh the bonny earl of Moray, he might have been a king.
