It was early one morning, just by the break of day,
We were 'wakened by the turnkey who unto us did say -
"Arise unlucky convicts, arise ye one and all,
This is the day you are to stray from Caledonia."
all arose, put on our clothes, our hearts were full of grief,
Our friends who all stood round the coach, could grant us no relief;
Our parents, wives and sweethearts dear, their hearts were broke
To see us leave the bonnie braes of Caledonia.
from Jamie Raeburn's Farewell (traditional)
