Leezie Lindsay on Guitar Live

Here is an instrumental version of Leezie Lindsay performed in Taybank Pub Dunkeld Perthshire Scotland. Here is a Tour Scotland video of Dougie Law playing Leezie Lindsay. The tune by Robert Burns. It was Filmed in the Taybank Pub in Dunkeld, Perthshire, Scotland.

This is a lovely tune, and there are a number of versions of the words this song.

"will ye gang tae the Hielands, Leezie Lindsay?
Will ye gang tae the Hielands wi' me?
Will ye gang tae the Hielands, Leezie Lindsay,
My bride and my darling tae be?"

"To gang to the Hielands wi' you, sir.
I dinna ken how that may be;
For I ken nae the land that ye live in,
Nor ken I the lad I'm gaun wi'."

"O, Leezie, lass, ye maun ken little,
If sae be ye dinna ken me;
For my name is Lord Ronald MacDonald,
A chieftain o' high degree."

She has kilted her coats o' green satin.
She has kilted them up tae her knee,
And she's aff wi' Lord Ronald MacDonald,
His bride and his darling tae be.

Leezie Lindsay first appears in Print in Johnson's Scots Musical Museum (1803). These words are by Robert Burns. Other versions found by Child include Donald of the Isles.
