lyrics

Fare thee weel, ye dungeons dark and strang
Fareweel, fareweel to thee
Macpherson's time will ne'er be lang
On yonder gallows tree

Sae wantonly, sae dauntonly
Sae rantonly gaed he
He played a tune an' he danced aroon
Below the gallows tree

Untie these bands from off my hands
Bring tae me my sword
There's nae a man in a' Scotland
That'll brave him at his word

Theres some come here tae see me hang
And some to buy my fiddle
But before that I do pairt wi' her
I'll brak' her through the middle

The reprieve was comin' o'er the Brig o' Banff
To set Macpherson free
But they put the clock a quarter afore
And they hanged him from that tree

Little did my auld mother think
When first she cradled me
That I would die a rovin' blade
And die upon the gallows tree
