Celtic-End Singer Origin: Scotland the Brave (61* d) Lyr Add: SCOTLAND THE BRAVE (Cliff Hanley) 08 Dec 99

(Lyrics by Cliff Hanley (1922-1999) to a Traditional tune)

Hark when the night is fallin', hear, hear the pipes a-callin'
Loudly and proudly callin' down through the glen.
There where the hills are sleepin', now feel the blood a-leapin'
High as the spirits of the old highland men!

Towering in gallant fame, Scotland my mountain hame!
High may your proud standards gloriously wave!
Land of the high endeavour, land of the shining river,
Land of my heart, forever, Scotland the brave!

High in the misty highlands, out by the purple islands,
Brave 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 light that shines from fair maidens' eyes! CHORUS

Far-off in sunlit places, sad are the Scottish faces,
Yearnin' to feel the kiss of sweet Scottish rain!
Where tropic skies are beamin', love sets the heart a-dreamin',
Longin' and dreamin' for the homeland again! CHORUS
