Sorry, I only have the Fureys version. You could try to email Gavin Browne, Ronnie's son, though. He does his father's PR and is usually very helpful. It's Gavin@corries.com

LEEZIE LINDSAY
^^
Ch
Will ye gang tae the heilands Leezie Lindsay
will ye gang tae the heilands wi me
will ye gang tae the heilands Leezie Lindsay
My bride and my darling to be

1.
Tae gang tae the heilands wi you sir
I dinnae ken how that maun be
at leaving the green glens and woodlands
and streams of my ain country

2.
Oh I'll show the red deer a roaming
on mountains where waves the tall pine
and as far as the bound of the red deer
ilk moorland and mountiain is mine

3.
A thousand claymores I can muster
ilk blade and its bearer the same
and when their chieftain they rally
the gallant Argyll is my name

4.
There's dancing and joy in the heilands
there's piping and gladness and glee
for Argyll has brought hame Leezie Lindsay
his bride and his darling tae be

Don, If you have the lyrics to the "The Bonnie Blue" by Roy Williamson, I would greatly appreciate a copy of the text. I have a very poor facsimile, that I transcribed off a CD by the Browne sisters from CA, I talked with them at a fest, and they weren't too sure on the words and they sort of filled in what they thought the words were. I would like to perform this song, but I want to get the words correct. Thanks for your time.

Don't know if it's any help, but Eddi Reader includes the song on her new CD "Peacetime". You might consider buying it.

Cheers,

Beware of comments about Hamburgers if you sing the verse where he tells her his name is Lord Ronald MacDonald

How about this version from Les Barker?

Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay?
Will ye gang to the High Street wi' me?
Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay
And we'll have some beefburgers for tea.

I won't go to the High Street with you sir
For I'm proud of my Scots history;
Of the pipes and the glens and the mountains;
It's a clan chief or nothing for me.

Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay?
Will ye gang to the High Street wi' me?
Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay
And we'll have some beefburgers for tea.

I know that you want a true Scotsman,
A chieftain of highest degree;
My name is Lord Ronald MacDonald;
Hoots mon; ye ken; will that dee?

Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay?
Will ye gang to the High Street wi' me?
Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay
And we'll have some beefburgers for tea.

My aunt was wi' Bonnie Prince Chairlie;
They say that she could have been Queen,
For her name was Flora MacDonald;
She invented the soft margarine.

Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay?
Will ye gang to the High Street wi' me?
Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay
And we'll have some beefburgers for tea.

Come wear my red and white tartan;
My kinfolk all come from Glencoe,
For my name is Lord Ronald MacDonald;
I'll have two Campbellburgers to go.

Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay?
Will ye gang to the High Street wi' me?
Will ye gang to the High Street, Lizzie Lindsay
And we'll have some beefburgers for tea.

Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wind;
Onward, the sailors cry;
Carry the lad that's born to be king
And bring back a burger and fries.

Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back a burger and fries, and fries.
Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back a burger and fries.

Amazing grease
There's half a pound
Of beef to retch like me
Once I was lost
But now I've found
Two carrots and a pea.

Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back your carrots and peas, and peas.
Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back your carrots and peas.

Let the wind blow high, let the wind blow low,
Through the streets in my kilt I'll go
All the lassies say hello;
Ronald where's your burgers?

To quote Ms Tabor (On one of the Mrs Barker CDs) "Barker , you're a Bastard"   'The January June' as I recall .
