Is this the one?

http://www.it-serve.co.uk/poetry/Songs/ghostsculloden.php

Chorus:
'Can you hear them? Can you see them
Marching proudly, across the moor?
Hear the wind blow, thru the driftin snow
Can you see them, the Ghosts of Culloden?'

Scotland's flag was raised, by Loch Sheil.
Our King's come hame, to claim his crown.
Our Clans rallied round, wi' avenging steel;
But blood would flow now, on Scottish ground.

Chorus:

Men wi' honor marched, to the battle field.
Outnumber'd 5-1, they fought wi' pride.
Hear their swords clash on blood red shields!
For Cal-e-donia, they fell and died.

Chorus:

This is our requiem, to our countrymen!
And to their women, and their children too.
They were burn'd an' clear'd from each Hielan glen!
Can you feel their heartbeat inside of you?

From the web site cited above:
"The Ghosts of Culloden © Patrick Scott Hogg, Cumbernauld, Scotland, 2003
(This is adapted from Ilsa Grant's song of the same title employing her chorus, but with new verses to the same tune: so apologies and compliments to her?.)"

Leigh Garden sings GHOSTS OF CULLODEN on her album "Highland Cathedral" and on the various-artists compilation "Heart of the Highlands."

I transcribed the following lyrics from a sound sample found at Barnes & Noble:

Many bravely fought
And sadly they were slain
But they died with such pride and dignity
Their lives were not in vain
We still remember them....

Here's what Isla Grant actually sings:


THE GHOSTS OF CULLODEN
(Isla Grant)

CHORUS:
Can you hear them? Can you see them
Marching proudly across the moor?
Hear the wind blow through the drifting snow.
Tell me, can you see them, the ghosts of Culloden?

1. Many bravely fought, and sadly they were slain,
But they died with such pride and dignity.
Their lives were not in vain; we still remember them.
They fought to save their land and died for liberty.
CHORUS

2. Through the mists you hear a lonely piper play.
Listen carefully; you'll hear a mournful cry.
Swords and bayonets crash as man to man they clash.
They came to fight to live and now they died.
CHORUS 3x


Written by Isla Grant
As sung by Isla Grant on "Mother" (2000)
