Scots Wha Hae                                                                 Robert Burns/trad Arr: Scocha




Scots wha hae wi’ Wallace bled

Scots wham Bruce has aften led

Welcome tae your gory bed

Or tae victory

Now’s the day and now’s the hour

See the front o’ battle lour

See approach proud Edward’s power

Chains and slavery


Wha will be a traitor knave

Wha can fill a coward’s grave

Wha sae base as be a slave

Let him turn and flee

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 oor dearest veins

But they shall be free

Lay the proud usurpers low

Tyrants fall in every foe

Liberty’s in every blow

Let us do or dee
