Abstract

Here's a health to them that's a'wa
Here's a health to them that's a'wa
And wha winna wish guid luck to our cause
May never guid luck be their fa"
It's guid to be merry and wise, its guid to be honest and true
It's guid to support Caledonia's cause
And bide by the bonnets of blue
Hurrah for the bonnets of blue, hurrah for the bonnets of blue
It's guid to support Caledonia's cause
And bide by the bonnets of blue


Here's a health to them that's a'wa
Here's a health to them that's a'wa
Here's a health to Charlie Chief of the clan
Altho' that his band be sma'
Here's freedom to him and that wad read
Here's freedom to him that wad write
There's nane ever fear'd that the truth should be heard
But they wham the truth wad indite
Hurrah for the bonnets of blue, hurrah for the bonnets of blue
It's guid to support Caledonia's cause
And bide by the bonnets of blue
