Song Lyrics

Although modern, this anthem commerates the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 when the
Scottish Army under Robert I (the
Bruce) King of Scots defeated Edward II (of Canarfon) King of England. This ended the
English rule of Scotland. Ironically in
1603 Elizabeth I, Queen of England, Wales, Ireland and France* died childless and her
second cousin James VI King of Scots
ascended to the English throne. Thus marriage achieved what the force of arms could not.
* English and later British Kings from Edward III to George III adopted the title King of
France though only one, Henry V was
actually crowned in France abd became defacto Kinf of France. Anthem text courtesy of
Andrew Williams's Homepage .
O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
Your like again,
That fought and died for,
Your wee bit Hill and Glen,
And stood against him,
Proud Edward's Army,
And sent him homeward,
Tae think again.
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.
Those days are past now,
And in the past
they must remain,
But we can still rise now,
And be the nation again,
That stood against him,
Proud Edward's Army,
And sent him homeward,
Tae think again.
Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
your like again,
That fought and died for,
Your wee bit Hill and Glen,
And stood against him,
Proud Edward's Army,
And sent him homeward,
Tae think again
Sent by Carlos André Pereira da Silva Branco
