lyrics

Cope sent a chailenge frae Dunbar’
Chairlie meet me an’ ye dare
I’ll learn ye the airts o’ war
If ye’ll meet me in the morning
When Chairlie looked the letter upon
He drew his sword his scabbard from
Follow me, my merry men
Meet Johnnie Cope in the morning

Hi, Johnny Cope, are ye walkin’ yet
Or are your drums a-beating yet
Gie you were walkin’ I would wait
Tae gang tae the coals in the morning

When Johnnie Cope he heard o’ this
He thought it wouldnae be amiss
Tae hae a horse in readiness
Tae flee awa’ in the morning
CH:
Fie noo Johnny, get up and rin
The Highland bagpipes mak’ a din
Better tae sleep wi’ a hale skin
It will be a bloody morning

CH:
BREAK
When Johnny Cope tae Dunbar cam’
They speirded him, Whaur’s a’ your men
The de’il confound me gin I ken
I left them a’ in the morning
Fie noo Johnny, ye werenae blate
Tae come wi’ the news o’ your ain defeat
And leave your men in sic a strait
Early in the morning
CH
Faith, quo’ Johnny, I got sic flegs
Frae their claymores and philabegs
Gin I face them again de’il brak’ my legs
I’ll bid ye’s a’ good morning
