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 cowards 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,
Free-man stand, or free-man fa',
Let him follow me!
By oppression's woes and pains!
By your sons in service chains!
We will drain our 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 die!
