- Gentlemen - the Tartan!

Here is a well known song to a Scottish icon, by Murdoch Maclean

You can download an MP3 version of this song from Margaret Donaldson's Web site.

Gentlemen - the Tartan!

Here's to it!
The fighting sheen of it,
The yellow, the green of it,
The white, the blue of it,
The swing, the hue of it,
The dark, the red of it,
Every thread of it!

The fair have sighed for it,
The brave have died for it,
Foemen sought for it,
Heroes fought for it,
Honour the name of it,
Drink to the fame of it -
