Sound the Pibroch (Mrs. Norman MacLeod Sr. ) Last verse by W J Bethancourt III Sound the pibroch loud and high From John O'Groats to the Isle of Skye! Let all the Clans their slogan cry And rise tae follow Charlie! (Chorus) Tha tighin fodham, fodham, fodham (3X) To rise and follow Charlie! And see a small devoted band By dark Loch Shiel have taen their stand And proudly vow wi' heart and hand To fight for Royal Charlie! Frae every hill and every glen Are gatherin' fast the loyal men They grasp their dirks and shout again "Hurrah! for Royal Charlie!" On dark Culloden's field of gore Hark! They shout "Claymore! Claymore!" They bravely fight what can they more? They die for Royal Charlie! No more we'll see such deeds again Deserted is each Highland glen And lonely cairns are o'er the men Who fought and died for Charlie! The White Rose blossoms forth again Deep in sheltered Highland glens And soon we'll hear the cry we ken Tae rise! And fight for Charlie! (note "tha tighin fodham" is pronounced HA CHEEN FOAM and means "it comes upon me" or "I have the wish." AJS
