  1. ‘AWAY with you, away with you, James de Grant! And, Douglas, ye’ll be slain; For Baddindalloch’s at your gates, With many brave Highland men.’
  2. ‘Baddindalloch has no feud at me, And I have none at him; Cast up my gates baith broad and wide, Let Baddindalloch in.’
  3. ‘James de Grant has made a vaunt, And leaped the castle-wa; But, if he comes this way again, He’ll no win sae well awa.
  4. ‘Take him, take him, brave Gordons, O take him, fine fellows a’! If he wins but ae mile to the Highland hills, He’ll defy you Gordons a’.’
