Lyrics for:
I Will Go

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Chorus:
I will go, I will go when the fighting is over
To the land of McLeod that I left to be a soldier
I will go, I will go

When the King's son came along he called us all together
Saying, "Brave heiland men will you fight for my father?"
I will go, I will go

Chorus

I've a buckle on my belt, a sword in my scabbard
A red coat on my back, and a shilling in my pocket
I will go, I will go

Chorus

When they put us all on board, the lassies were singing
But the tears came to their eyes, when the bells started ringing
I will go, I will go

Chorus

When we landed on the shore, and saw the foreign heather
We knew that some would fall, and would stay there forever
I will go, I will go

Chorus

When we came back to the glen, the winter was turning
Our goods lay in the snow, and our houses were burning
I will go, I will go

Chorus
