VERSE 1

    D      G       D     G       D        A7     D 
Oh! where, tell me where is your highland laddie gone?

Oh! where, tell me where is your highland laddie gone?

                         Bm E           A     E7        A 
He's gone with streaming banners, where noble deeds are done,

         D   G     D     G D        A7      D 
And it's oh! in my heart I wish him safe at home,

                         Bm  E         A     E7        A 
He's gone with streaming banners where noble deeds are done,

And it's oh! in my heart I wish him safe at home.
