Abstract

My heart’s in the highlands
My heart is not here
My heart’s in the highlands a chasing the deer
A chasing the wild deer and following the roe
Oh! My heart’s in the highlands wherever I go
My heart’s in the highlands wherever I go
Oh! Farewell to the highlands, farewell to the north
The birth place of valor the country of worth
Wherever I wander wherever I rove
The hills of the highlands forever I love
Oh! My heart’s in the highlands my heart is not here
My heart’s in the highlands a chasing the deer
A chasing the deer and following the roe
Oh! My heart’s in the highlands wherever I go
My heart’s in the highlands wherever I go.

Farewell to the mountain high cover’d with snow;
Farewell to the straths and green valleys below;
Farewell to the forests and wild hanging woods;
Oh farewell to the torrents and loud pouring floods
Oh farewell to the highlands, farewell to the north
The birth place of valor the country of worth;
Wherever I rove The hills of the highlands forever I go
Oh! My hearts in the highlands my heart is not here;
My heart’s in the highlands a chasing the deer
A chasing the deer, and following the roe,
Oh! My heart’s in the highlands wherever I go,
My heart’s in the highlands wherever I go.
