Brave Scots


Brave Scots

When “Flower of Scotland” played
The tears welled in our eyes
Pipes and drums in parade
Marched under the bluest skies

No prouder soldier ever marched
Than those of Foot and Highland
Across the vast desert parched
And with the Bruce on Rathin Island

From Balaclava with Royal Scots Greys
With the 92nd at Quatre Bras and Waterloo
The Royal Scots Navy rode mighty waves
The Kaffrarian Rifles and the Highlanders Pictou

Scottish warriors sent Edward home
And fought the brave battle of New Orleans
The bravest soldiers that fought for the throne
And crossed the expanse of majestic seas
