There was a belief in ancient scotland that when a soldier died in battle, his soul would immediately travel underground back to Scotland. Thus the mortally wounded singing to his fellow soldier "I'll take the low road, and I'll be in scotland afore ye."
you take the high road

and i'll take the low road

For me and my true love will NEVER meet again on the bonnie bonnie banks of lock lomand ... cause he's dying.
