"Loch Lomond" as written by Jake Shimabukuro and Franz (dp) Schubert....
Where the sun shines on Loch Lomond.
Where me and tea tree my true love spent many days
On the banks of Loch Lomond.

Too sad we parted in yon shady glen,
On the steep sides of Ben Lomond.
Where the broken heart knows no second spring,
Resigned we must be while we're parting.

You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore you.
Where me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

Ho, ho mo leannan
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach
Ho mo leannan bhoidheach

You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye.
Where me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore you.
Where me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore you.
Where me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore you.
Where me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks
On bonnie, bonnie banks

Hey, Hey, Hey

    General CommentIt's about a kind of combination of some of the above comments... PeteNefyn was closest. Two men were captured during a Scottish uprising, and one of them was released while the other was put to death. The song is from the perspective of the soldier who is killed, who will take the "low road", which is the afterlife, as his spirit travels back to Scotland, while his comrade must physically walk over the high lands. The other bits of the song are about how him and his lover used to spend their days of the banks of Loch Lomond, and how he will never be able to spend that time with her again.
