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"
