Narrator: As I came in by Achindoon just a wee bit from the town, To the Highlands I was bound to view the haughs of Cromdale I met a man in tartan trews, I spiered at him what was the news Says he: "The Highland army rues that ever we came to Cromdale" Highland Man: "We were in bed, sir, every man, when the English host upon us came A bloody battle then began upon the haughs of Cromdale The English horse they were so rude, they bathed their hoofs in Highland blood But every clan so boldly stood upon the haughs of Cromdale" "But alas we could no longer stay for over the hills we came away And sore we do lament the day that ever we came to Cromdale" Thus the great Montrose did say: " Highland man, show me the way! For I will over the hills this day and I'll view the haughs of Cromdale" Highland Man: "But alas my Lord you're not so strong, you scarcely have two thousand man There's twenty thousand on the plain stand rank and file on Cromdale" Thus the great Montrose did say: "Highland man, show me the way! For I will over the hills this day and I'll view the haughs of Cromdale" Narrator: They were at dinner, every man when the great Montrose upon them came A second battle then began upon the haughs of Cromdale The Grant, Mackenzie and M'ky, soon as Montrose they did espy Oh then they fought most valiantly upon the haughs Of Cromdale The McDonalds they returned again, the Camerons did their their standard join, Macintosh played a bloody game upon the haughs Of Cromdale The MacGregors fought like lions bold, MacPhersons none could them control, MacLoughlins fought like loyal souls upon the haughs Of Cromdale Survivor: "Well, I don't care who's wrong or right cause men will die in any fight Can't stand the clashing of the swords upon the haughs of Cromdale Every night I see the dead, the corpses still inside my head Can't find no peace cause blood was shed There on the haughs of Cromdale"
