Anne Cormack Lyr Req: Sound the Pibroch (9) Lyr Add: SOUND THE PIBROCH 11 Feb 97

If it's the same song Alex means, it's actually called "Sound the Pibroch"


1. Sound the pibroch loud and high,
Frae John o' Groats to Isle o' Skye,
Let a' the clans their slogan cry
Rise and follow Charlie.

Chorus: Tha tighin fodham, fodham, fodham (x3)
Rise and follow Charlie

2. See the small devoted band,
By dark Loch Shiel have ta'en their stand,
And proudly vow with heart and hand
To fight for Royal Charlie.

3. Frae every hill and every glen
Are gathering fast the loyal men,
They grasp their dirks and shout again
"Hurrah for Royal Charlie!"

4. On dark Culloden's field of gore,
Hark, hark they shout, "Claymore, claymore!"
They bravely fight, what can they more?
They die for Royal Charlie.

5. 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.

Let me know if this was what you were looking for. You can hear it on the Corries album called "Sound the Pibroch".
