    "Highland Boy" Lyrics

    Through a field there ran a brook
    From the hills beyond
    Where a boy put down his book
    And from me now is gone

    I am reminded of him here
    Where rain on heather falls
    The pages scattered on the banks
    Since first he heard the call

    "Arise, arise, and come away
    You are our pride and joy
    The drums shall roll and the pipes shall play
    For our highland boy"

    He sailed on ships and loved a wife
    Children played upon his knee
    He read the story of his life
    That told his destiny

    And when in Death's cold eyes he looked
    He bravely faced the foe
    And through his heart there ran the brook
    He followed long ago

    And so we laid him to his rest
    We laid him gently down
    We heard Scotland's bonnie drums
    And there was glory in the ground

    The field shall be his blanket warm
    The stars his diadem
    The hills shall stand his honor guard
    And the pipes his requiem
