March Of The Cameron Men

Lyrics by Fraser McGill
Music by Fraser McGill, Drew Mayo, Kristen Vandling & Colin Hall

From the barracks in old Inverness
To the butchers riding through the West
From Fort William to Loch Linhe's best
The March O' The Cameron Men
Will you keep a light while I'm on the hill
with a candle on the window sill?
To my bonnie lass will you love me still?
The March O' The Cameron Men

Hey Johnnie Cope are you walkin' yet?
Are your drums a beating yet?
If you were a walkin' I would wait
And we'll gang to the coals in the morning

And it's up and down that old moutainside
C'mon ye dogs and we'll skin the hide
Cameron barracks is where I bide
The March O' The Cameron Men
From Culloden Field to old Borneo
To the trenches of the Somme I'll go
And I'll face you at Korea's woe
The March O' The Cameron Men

Hey Johnnie Cope are you walkin' yet?
Are your drums a beating yet?
If you were a walkin' I would wait
And we'll gang to the coals in the morning

Will you bury me in the Nevis snow?
Where the wild old blue shackle grows
And I'll follow you to hell I'll go
The March O' The Cameron Men
From Saint-Velery to Drummosie Field
I promised you I'd never yield
Erracht Lochaber I've been sealed
The March O' The Cameron Men

Hey Johnnie Cope are you walkin' yet?
Are your drums a beating yet?
If you were a walkin' I would wait
And we'll gang to the coals in the morning
