Lyrics: Allan Ramsay

Farewell to Lochaber, and farewell my Jean,
Where heartsome with thee I have many days been,
For Lochaber no more, for Lochaber no more,
Maybe to return to Lochaber no more.

These tears that I shed, they are all for my dear,
And not for the dangers attending on war;
Tho' borne on rough seas to a far distant shore,
Maybe to return to Lochaber no more.
