There's Naethin I' Hielants There's naething i' Hielants but green kail and leeks, And lang-leggit Hielantmen wantin' the breeks; Wantin' the breeks, and withoot hose or shoon, They'll a' get the breeks when Jamie comes hame. ________________________________________________________ Rymour Club Misc. I (1906), 221, from Kirriemuir; on the face of it, referring to the first Jacobite rebellion. Lines 1-2 ibid., 127, from Crawford district ("There's nocht in the Hielan's but lang kail and leeks"), called "a well-known rhyme, expressing the Lowlander's contempt for the Highlander." MS OCT98
