My Heart’s in the Highlands
By Robert Burns (1759–1796)
 
MY heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here;
My heart’s in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe—
My heart’s in the Highlands wherever I go.
Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North!        5
The birthplace of valor, the country of worth;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.
 
Farewell to the mountains high covered with snow!
Farewell to the straths and green valleys below!        10
Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods!
Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods!
My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe—        15
My heart’s in the Highlands wherever I go.
