Traditional Scottish Songs
- Scots wha' hae'
Scots wha' hae'
Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled, Scots, wham Bruce has aften led, Welcome to your gory bed Or to victorie!
- Now's the day, and now's the hour:
- See the front o' battle lour,
- See approach proud Edward's power
- Chains and slaverie!
- Wha will be a traitor knave?
- Wha can fill a coward's grave?
- Wha sae base as be a slave?
- Let him turn, and fleel
- Wha for Scotland's King and Law
- Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
- Freeman stand, or freeman fa',
- Let him follow me!
- By Oppression's woes and pains,
- By your sons in servile chains,
- We will drain our dearest veins
- But they shall be free!
