A Song For Scotland
Posted on March 25th, 2016
In this time of bitter sorrow
Forget the loss. Work for tomorrow !
Come gie us an honest heartfu’ song?
Tae mak us feel that we belong
Confident aye; Independent? (sigh).
But Listen! From sea and munro
from Kelso to Thurso
On wind and tide
On Tweed, Tay and Clyde
None but ourselves can make us whole
None but ourselves can heal the soul
Let the folk tide bring us hame
Leave behind auld Longdone’s shame
Wi’ it’s Wasteminster arsetocracy;
a politricks hypocrisy;our famed damokracy.
Scotia is still in birthin’ pains
In this big world o’ Adams weans
Let us sing the great song,
That echoes in the bone
sing it like yon Davie’s stone
“Freedom Come all ye"
Cry it on the lonely wind
In housing schemes ahent the blind
On mountain tops let us sing
Feel the spirit a Dr. King
Sing it wi’ drams or cups a tea
Cross glens an toons on oily sea
We can, we should be
Yes dear Lord… mak us free!
Aye, free fae endless poverty
fae a persistent unfair society
from posh-built inequality
an unjust corrupting economy
auld hardships and a false modernity
Bringing new forms of auld misery
Built on shibboleths of prosperity
In a Scotland built by Mundell-Fluffy?
Or some other labour-tory numpty?
No not for you. Not for me.
A Union land of hope and glory?
Not for you…not for me!
Only Scottish sovereignty!
One destiny! LIBERTY!
SNP SNP! Make us FREE!
