Lay me doon in the caul, caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv groon
Lay me doon in the caul, caul groon
Whaur afore monte mair huv gaun

When they come a wull staun ma groon
Staun md groon at nae be afraid

Thoughts awe hame tak awa ma fear
Sweat an bluid hide ma veil tears

Ains a year say a prayer faur me
Close yir een an remember me

Nair mair shall the sun
For a fell tae a Germans gun

Lay me down in the caul, caul groon
Whaur alone monie mair huv gaun

Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun

English translation.
Lay me down in the cold, cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Lay me in the cold, cold ground
Where before many more have gone

When they come I will stand my ground
Stand my ground I'll not be afraid

Thoughts of home take away my fear
Sweat and blood hide my veil of tears

Once a year say a prayer for me
Close your eyes and remember me

Never more shall I see the sun
For I fell to a German's gun

Lay me down in the cold, cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Lay me down in the cold, cold ground
Where before many more have gone

Where before many more have gone
