Minor edits for the sake of accuracy:

Oh, Father, tell me why?
There's no a man among them a'
Will look him in the eye?

Montrose, Montrose, you are the rose
You gave your life for loyalty
But it's no the hour a rose can flower
Between the Kirk and royalty, Montrose


3)Harken now, my bonny boy
As we stand before the kirk
O' does the thunder of the horses' hooves
Hie o' the devil's work?
For the Covenant's a Campbell mare
That rides across the law
And 'ere a Stuart bridles her
The Graham's head must fall

4)I'll rede you now a riddle
By the shining o' the moon
When King and Kirk sit down to sup
Wha' needs a longer spoon?
