Traditional
  1. Scots wha hae wi' Wallace bled, Scots wham Bruce hath aften led,
    Welcome to your gory bed, Or to Victorie!
    Now's the day and now's the hour, See the front of battle lour,
    See approach proud Edward's power, Chains and slaverie.
  2. Wha wad be a traitor knave? Wha wad fill a coward's grave?
    Wha sae base as be a slave? Let him turn and flee!
    Wha for Scotland's king and law, Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
    Freeman stand, or freeman fa', Let him follow me!
  3. By oppression's woes an' pains, By your sons in servile chains,
    We will drain our dearest veins, But they shall be free!
    Lay the proud usurpers low! Tyrants fall in every foe!
    Liberty's in every blow! Let us do or dee!
