There’s some say that we wan, some say that they wan,
Some say that nane wan at a’, man,
But one thing I’m sure that at Sheriff-Muir,
A battle there was which I saw, man.
And we ran and they ran, and they ran and we ran,
And we ran, and they ran awa’, man.
Battle of Sheriffmuir was an engagement in 1715 at the height of the Jacobite rising in England and Scotland
