Will He No Come Back Again?

Royal Charlie's now awa,
  Safely owre the friendly main;
  Mony a heart will break in twa,
  Should he ne'er come back again.
  Will you no come back again?
  Will you no come back again?
  Better lo'ed you'll never be,
  And will you no come back again?

  Mony a traitor 'mang the isles
  Brak the band o' nature's law;
  Mony a traitor, wi' his wiles,
  Sought to wear his life awa.
  Will he no come back again?
  Will he no come back again?
  Better lo'ed he'll never be,
  And will he no come back again?

  The hills he trode were a' his ain,
  And bed beneath the birken tree;
  The bush that hid him on the plain,
  There's none on earth can claim but he.
  Will he no come back again?
  Will he no come back again?
  Better lo'ed he'll never be,
  And will he no come back again?

  Whene'er I hear the blackbird sing,
  Unto the e'ening sinking down,
  Or merl that makes the woods to ring,
  To me they hae nae ither soun',
  Than, Will he no come back again?
  Will he no come back again?
  Better lo'ed he'll never be,
  And will he no come back again?

  Mony a gallant sodger fought,
  Mony a gallant chief did fa';
  Death itself were dearly bought,
  A' for Scotland's king and law.
  Will he no come back again?
  Will he no come back again?
  Better lo'ed he'll never be,
  And will he no come back again?

  Sweet the lav'rock's note and lang,
  Lilting wildly up the glen;
  And aye the o'erword o' the sang
  Is "Will he no come back again?"
  Will he no come back again?
  Will he no come back again?
  Better lo'ed he'll never be,
  And will he no come back again?
