LYRIC

Ye Jacobites
Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear, lend an ear,
Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear,
Ye Jacobites by name, yer faults I will proclaim
Yer doctrines I must blame, you shall hear, you shall
hear,
Yer doctrines I must blame, you shall hear.

What is right an what is wrong, by the law, by the law,
What is right an what is wrong, by the law,
What is right an what is wrong, by short sword or by
long,
A weak arm or a strong for to draw, for to draw,
a weak arm or a strong for to draw.

What makes heroic strife famed afar, famed afar,
what makes heroic strife famed afar,
what makes heroic strife, tae whet assassin’s knife,
Or haunt a parent’s life with bloody war, bloody war,
Or haunt a parent’s life with bloody war.

Then let yer schemes alone in the state, in the state,
Then let yer schemes alone in the state,
Then let yer schemes alone, adore the Rising Sun,
And leave a man undone to his fate, to his fate,
And leave a man undone to his fate.

Refrain:
Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear, lend an ear,
Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear,
Ye Jacobites by name, yer faults I will proclaim
Yer doctrines I must blame, you shall hear, you shall
hear,
Yer doctrines I must blame, you shall hear.
