The Bluebells of Scotland.

An old Scottish folksong originating from a poem by Mrs Anne Grant of Laggan.

The poem was about the departure of the Marquis of Huntly and his regiment of Gordon Highlanders for Holland in 1799:


Oh where, tell me where is your highland laddie gone?
Oh where, tell me where is your highland laddie gone?
He's gone with streaming banners where noble deeds are done
And it's oh! in my heart I wish him safe at home.

Oh where, tell me where did your highland laddie dwell?
Oh where, tell me where did your highland laddie dwell?
He dwelt in bonnie Scotland where blooms the sweet bluebell
And it's oh! in my heart I love my laddie well.
