Ye Jacobites By Name


Em G D Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear, lend an ear!

Em Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear,

G D Ye Jacobites by name, Your fautes I will proclaim,

Em D Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear, you will hear !

Em D Your doctrines I maun blame - you will hear !


Em G D What is Right, and what is wrang, by the law, by the law?

Em What is Right, and what is wrang, by the law?

G D What is Right, and what is wrang a short sword and a lang,

Em D A weak arm and a strang, for to draw, for to draw !

Em D A weak arm and a strang, for to draw !


Em G D What makes heroic strife, famed afar, famed afar?

Em What makes heroic strife famed afar?

G D What makes heroic strife ? To whet the assassin's knife,

Em D Or hunt a Parent's life, wi bloody war, bloody war !

Em D Or hunt a Parent's life, wi bloody war!


Em G D Then let your schemes alone, in the State, in the State!

Em Then let your schemes alone, in the State!

G D Then let your schemes alone, Adore the rising sun,

Em D And leave a man undone, to his fate, to his fate !

Em D And leave a man undone, to his fate !
