Lyrics - Scotland

Here's to another time of harmony and simple rhyme
When new friends and old combine to share our country's story
Cold winter's past and gone summer days are stretching long
And oh that I were staying on but she is gently calling

Scotland I hear your name in every cry of bitter pain
Oh freedoms call has been the game that you have played so bravely

Remember now the hills of snow and heather moors where rivers flow
The ancient thistle there did grow till southern winds came blowing
England the sovereign might reluctant neighbours bitter fights
And marriage vows devoid of rights to stop the blood from flowing

And now the bloody battle's o'er the union flag's within our door
The lion sleeps when once it roared the kingdom is united
Warm summers past and gone a chilling wind is blowing strong
The nights are hard and oh so long, another winter’s coming
