Flower of Scotland

 I

O flower of Scotland
when will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen
That stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

 II

The hills are bare now
And Autumn leaves lie thick and still
O' er land that is lost now
Which those so dearly held
That stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

 III

Those days are past now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be a nation again
That stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
Tae think again

 

Roy Williamson hat das Lied geschrieben und damit unbewußt oder bewußt die Kraft und auch das ganze Gefühl Schottlands für seine werte und seine Vergangenheit eingefangen. Ein Lied in der Tradition der Jakobiter voller Kampfgeist. Und so ist es auch kein Wunder, daßdieses Lied eine Art heimlicher Nationalhymne wurde, welches unter anderem bei Football-Spielen erklingt und auch sonst eigentlich nirgends fehlt, wo Schottlands Geist vertreten ist.
