2 Hieland Laddy (Jacobite) Where ha' ye been a' the day? Bonnie laddie, Hielan' laddie Saw ye him that' far awa' Bonnie laddie, Hielan' laddie On his head a bonnet blue Bonnie laddie, Hielan' laddie Tartan plaid and Hielan' trews Bonnie laddie, Hielan' laddie When he drew his gude braid-sword Then he gave his royal word. Frae the field he ne'er wad flee Wi' his friends wad live or dee. Geordie sits in Charlie's chair But I think he'll no bide there. Charlie yet shall mount the throne Weel ye ken it is his own. From Minstrelsy of Scotland, Moffatt Note: words are a fragment of "a long and very coarse Jacobite ballad" published in Jacobite Relics, 1810. A version of the tune appeared in Playford, 11th edition, 1701. RG
