Child's Ballads/197

For works with similar titles, see James Grant.


'AWAY with you, away with you, James de Grant!
And, Douglas, ye'll be slain;
For Baddindalloch's at your gates,
With many brave Highland men.'
'Baddindalloch has no feud at me,
And I have none at him;
Cast up my gates baith broad and wide,
Let Baddindalloch in.'
'James de Grant has made a vaunt,
And leaped the castle-wa;
But, if he comes this way again,
He'll no win sae well awa.
'Take him, take him, brave Gordons,
O take him, fine fellows a'!
If he wins but ae mile to the Highland hills,
He'll defy you Gordons a'.'
