Robert Bruce's March To Bannockburn


"Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,

Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,

Welcome to your gory bed,

Or to victory.


Now's the day, and now's the hour;

See the front of battle lower;

See approach proud Edward's power—

Chains and slavery.


Wha will be a traitor knave?

Wha can 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 on wi' me.


By oppression's woes and 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 die."


Robert Burns (1793)


The lyrics were written by Robert Burns in 1793, in the form of a speech given by Robert the Bruce before the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, where Scotland maintained its sovereignty from the Kingdom of England. Although the lyrics are by Burns, he wrote them to the traditional Scottish tune Hey Tuttie Tatie which, according to tradition, was played by Bruce's army at the Battle of Bannockburn, and by the Franco-Scots army at the Siege of Orleans
