1  My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer -
A-chasing the wild deer and following the roe;
My heart’s in the Highlands wherever I go.

2  Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North
The birth place of Valour, the country of Worth;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.

3  Farewell to the mountains high covered with snow;
Farewell to the straths and green valleys below;
Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods;
Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.

4  My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer
A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;
My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go.
