        Lyrics


        Oh, my love's in Germany, send him home, send him home,
        Oh, my love's in Germany, send him home.
        Oh, my love's in Germany,
        Lang leagues 0' land and sea
        Frae Westrey and frae me, Send him home, send him home.
        Oh, my love's in Germany, Send him home.

        Oh, weary fa' the war, Send him home, send him home,
        That tysed my love sae rar, Send him home.
        Oh, were he home again,
        How blythe we'd be and rain,
        But he's rar ayont the main, Send him home, send him home.
        Oh, my love's in Germany, Send him home.

        Oh, wad some birdie say, Send him home, send him home,
        To my sodger far away, Send him home.
        How lonely sighs his May,
        Conntin' year and month and day,
        For oh! her heart is wae, Send him home, send him home.
        Oh, my love's in Germany, Send him home.

 

 

"My Love’s in Germany" (My Luve's in Germanie) is a poem written by Scottish poet Hector Macneill.[1][2] It was first printed in 1794 and is the lament of a Scottish woman for her lover.[3]

The song was re-published in 1885 by Colonel David Balfour as an Orkney melody composed by Colonel Thomas Traill around 1630. Traill, who was from Holland and had been living in Papa Westray, was a soldier in the army of Gustavus Adolphus, also known asGermany Thomas, during the Thirty Years' War.[4]

The tune was later used by Robert Burns for his song Ye Jacobites by Name.
