chorus Dumbartons drums they sound sae bonnie, And they remind me o my Johnnie, Such fond delight does fall upon me, When Johnnie kneels and kisses me.
My love he is a handsome laddie,
And though he is Dumbartons caddie,
Some day Ill be a Captains lady,
When Johnnie tends his vow tae me.
Across the fields of bounding heather,
Dumbarton sounds the hour o pleasure,
The joy I know will know no measure,
When Johnnie kneels and kisses me.
Tis he alone that can delight me,
His roving eyes they do invite me,
And when his tender arms enfold me,
The blackest night does turn and flee
Wearing the costumes of Royal Scots
Dragoons, the Soldiers of Killecrankie perform historical reenactments
of scenes from the 1689 Battle of Killiecrankie, fought between
supporters of the Catholic Stuart King James II & VII of Scotland
and the protestant William of Orange during the first Jacobite uprising TIMES PHOTOGRAPHER JAMES GLOSSOP
