[G]For fame and for fortune I [C]wandered the [G]earth
And [C]now I've come [G]back to the land of my [D]birth
I've brought back my [G]treasures [G7]but only to [C]find
They're less than the [G]pleasures I [D]first left be[G]hind
For these are my mountains and this is my glen
The braes of my childhood will know me again
No land's ever claimed me tho' far I did roam
For these are my mountains and I'm going home
and I'm coming home
The berm by the road sings at my going by
The lark overhead wings a welcoming cry
The loch where the scart flies at last I can see
It's here where my heart lies it's here I'll be free
Kind faces will meet me and welcome me in
And how they will greet me my ain kith and kin
The night by the ingle old sangs will be sung
At last I'll be hearing my ain mother tongue.
