1  All ye that love fair freedom,
Come join our gallant band!
We have no lord and master,
By water nor by land!
And when the dews are falling,
And darkness shrouds the ground,
We mount our steeds like troopers bold,
and scour the country round.

2  No usurers infest us,
We do not need their aid,
If prince or priest molest us,
Their strongholds we invade;
For when the stars are twinkling,
And burghers sleeping sound,
We mount our steeds like troopers bold,
and scour the country round.
