A SCOTTISH SOLDIER (GREEN HILLS OF TYROL)
Words by Andy Stewart, arranged by Iain MacFadyen, ©1960
As recorded by Andy Stewart

1. There was a soldier, a Scottish soldier,
Who wandered far away and soldiered far away.
There was none bolder, with good broad shoulder.
He'd fought in many a fray and fought and won.
He'd seen the glory; he'd told the story
Of battles glorious and deeds victorious,
But now he's sighing; his heart is crying
To leave those green hills of Tyrol.

CHORUS:
Because those green hills are not highland hills
Or the island hills, they're not my land's hills,
And fair as these green foreign hills may be,
They are not the hills of home.

2. And now this soldier, this Scottish soldier,
Who wandered far away and soldiered far away
Sees leaves are falling, and death is calling
And he will fade away in that far land.
He called his piper, his trusty piper,
And bade him sound a lay, a pibroch sad to play
Upon a hillside but Scottish hillside
Not on those green hills of Tyrol.

CHORUS: Because those green...etc.

3. And now this soldier, this Scottish soldier,
Will wander far no more, and soldier far no more,
And on a hillside, a Scottish hillside,
You'll see that piper play his soldier home.
He's seen the glory; he's told the story
Of battles glorious and deeds victorious.
The bugles cease now; he is at peace now,
Far from those green hills of Tyrol.

CHORUS: Because those green...etc.

REPEAT CHORUS
