Doon by Stirling Brig, the Wallace lay in hiding
As the Englishmen, frae the south came riding
Loud the river Forth, between them baith was gurling
Gurling oot o' sicht, below the Brig O Stirling

Watching frae the wood, the Wallace and the Moray
As the English Cam' wi' the Earl O' Surrey 
Ane by ane they crossed, a' the brig was filling 
Still they onward cam' o'er the Brig O' Stirling 

Wallace gave the shout, oot his men cam running 
Stopped the English host on the Brig O' Stirling 
Cressingham turned round, the brig was sma' for turning
Moray cut him down on the Brig O' Stirling 

All the English men ran intae each other 
Nane could turn about, nane could gae much further
Some fell o'er the side in the Forth was drowning 
Some were left tae dee on the Brig O' Stirling 

Surrey he was wild, could nae ford the river 
Wished wi' all his mecht that the brig was bigger
Then he rade awa, loud the man was cursin' 
He'd lost a' his men, and the Brig o' Stirling.
