17th century songs 'When cannons are roaring'

By Forbes 1662. If you have ever reenacted the 17th century you would have probably sung this around a campfire but if you haven't here's the lyrics - other songs of the era here
According to the clan tartan page 'it's to the tune of "A Statute for Drunkards and Swearer" (1624)

This song was quoted by Captain Robert Monro in his memoirs of his service under Gustavus Adolphus.
