Lock the door Lariston
Lion o' Liddesdale
Lock the door Lariston
Lowther comes on
The Armstrongs are flyin'
The widows are cryin'
Castletown is burnin' and Oliver is gone
Lock the door Lariston
High on the weather gleam
See how the Saxon plumes
They bob on the sky
Yeoman and carbinier (cavalryman and rifleman)
Billman and halberdier (axeman and spearman)
Fierce is the battle and far is the cry
Newcastle brandishes high his broad scimitar
Ridley is riding his fleet-footed grey
Hidley and Howard there
Wandel O' Windermere
Lock the door Lariston
Hold them at bay
Why dae ye smile noble Elliot O'Lariston (do you)
Why does the joy candle gleam in your eye?
You bold Border ranger
Beware o' your danger
Your foes are relentless
Determined and nigh!
I hae Mangerton and Ogilvie (have)Raeburn and Netherby
Old Sym O'Whitram and a' his array (all)
Come all Northumberland Teesdale and Cumberland
Here at the Breaken Tower
End the affray
See how they wane the proud file o' the Windermere
Howard a woe tae yer hopes o' the day (to your hopes of)
Hear the rude welkin rend (withering)
While the Scots' shouts ascend
Elliot O'Lariston! Elliot for aye!
