Scotland The Brave Bagpipes Lyrics
Hark, when the night is fallingHear, hear the pipes are calling Loudly and proudly calling down through the glen There where the hills are sleeping now feel the blood a-leaping High as the spirits of the old highland men
(Chorus)Towering in gallant fame Scotland my mountain hame High may your proud standards gloriously wave
Land o’ the high endeavour Land o’ the shining riverland o’ my heart foreverScotland the brave
High in the Misty highlands, out by the purple islands brace are the hearts that beat beneath Scottish skies wild are the winds to meet you staunch are the friends that greet you kind as the love that shines from fair maidens eyes.
