lyrics

Farewell ye dungeons dark and strong,
Farewell, farewell tae thee.
MacPherson's time will no be lang
On yonder gallows tree.

It was by a woman's treacherous hands
That I was condemned to dee.
She stood uben a windae ledge
And a blanket she threw o'er me.

Sae rantingly, sae wantonly
And sae dauntingly, gaed he;
He played a tune and he danced around
below the gallows tree.

Oh what is death, but parting of breath
On mony a bloody plain
I've daur'd his face, and in his place
I scorn him yet again

Sae rantingly, sae wantonly
And sae dauntingly, gaed he;
He played a tune and he danced around
below the gallows tree.

I've lived a life, o' straught and strife
I die by treachery
It burns my heart, I must depart
And no avenged be

Sae rantingly, sae wantonly
And sae dauntingly, gaed he;
He played a tune and he danced around
below the gallows tree.

So tak these bands fae off my hands
Gae to me my sword
There's nae a man in a' Scotland
But I'll brave him at a word

Now farewell light thou parting of light
And all beneath the sky
May coward shame disdain his name
The wretch that dare not die

Sae rantingly, sae wantonly
And sae dauntingly, gaed he;
He played a tune and he danced around
below the gallows tree.
