The Flower of Scotland
T & M: Roy Williamson, The Corries, jaren '60
"The Flower of Scotland" herdenkt de "Battle of Bannockburn" (1314) waar het Schotse leger, onder leiding van Robert the Bruce, het Engelse leger van Edward II versloeg, wat een voorlopig einde van de Engelse bezetting van Schotland betekende. De "Flower" waarvan sprake, is een distel.
O' flower of Scotland When will we see yer likes again That fought and died for Yer wee bit Hill and Glen
And stood against him "Who's that!" Proud Edward's army And sent him homeward To think again.
The hills are bare now And autumn leaves lie thick and still Our land is lost now That those so dearly held
Those days are passed now And in the past they must remain But we can still rise now And be the nation again
O' flower of Scotland When will we see yer likes again That fought and died for Yer wee bit hill and glen
