my heart' s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
my heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,
my heart's in the Highlands wherever I go.
farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,
the birthplace of Valour, the country of Worth;
wherever I wonder, wherever I rove
the hills of the Highlands forever I love.
