Lyrics to The King's Shilling Oh my love has left me wi' bairnies twa
And that's the last o' him I ever saw
He's joined the army and he marched awa'
He took the shillin'
He took the shillin' and he marched awa'

Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war
Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war

He looked so fine as he marched along
Wi' his kilt and sporran an' his musket gun
And the ladies kissed them as they marched awa'
He sailed out by
They sailed out by the Berwick Law

Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war
Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war

The pipes did play as he marched along
And soldiers sang out a battle song
"March on, march on," cried the Captain gay
For King and country
For King and country we will fight today

Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war
Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war

The battle rattled tae the sound o' guns
And bayonets flashed in the morning sun
The drums did beat and the cannons roar
And the shillin' didn't seem
The shillin' didn't seem much worth the war

Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war
Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war

And on they fought and the men did fall
Cut down by bayonet and musket ball
And many o' these brave young men
Would never fight for
Would never fight for their King again

Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war
Come laddies come, hear the cannons roar
Take the King's shilling an' we're off tae war
