Flower of Scotland

Written by Roy Williamson (from the Corries) in 1967

 

Oh Flower Of Scotland,
When will we see, your like again
That fought and died for
Yer wee bit hill and glen
And stood against him
Proud Edward’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

The hills are bare now
And autumn leaves lie thick and still
For land that is lost now
Which those so dearly held
And stood against him
Proud Edward’s army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

Those days are past now
And in the past, they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again
That stood against him
Proud Edward’s Army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

The hills are bare now
And autumn leaves lie thick and still
For land that is lost now
Which those so dearly held
Oh Flower Of Scotland
When will we see
Yer like again

That fought and died for
Yer wee bit hill and glen
And stood against him
Proud Edward’s Army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again
