My Harry was a Gallant Gay (Poem by Robert Burns)

Old Poem

My Harry was a Gallant Gay (1)
By Robert Burns


My Harry was a gallant gay,
    Fu’ stately strode he on the plain:
But now he’s banish’d far away,
    I’ll never see him back again,
        O for him back again!
            O for him back again!
        I wad gie a’ Knockhaspie’s land
            For Highland Harry back again.


My Harry was a Gallant Gay (2)


When a’ the lave gae to their bed,
    I wander dowie up the glen;
I set me down and greet my fill,
    And ay I wish him back again.


My Harry was a Gallant Gay (3)


O were some villains hangit high.
    And ilka body had their ain!
Then I might see the joyfu’ sight,
    My Highland Harry back again.
        O for him back again!
            O for him back again!
        I wad gie a’ Knockhaspie’s land
            For Highland Harry back again.
