Subject: RE: Flower of Scotland, official?
Highland Cathedral also fits the bill very well. It's in praise of the Nation, and has some notes that most people singing it won't get. It's also a much nicer tune than FoS, and less depressing. It does fail to mention slaughterin/being slaughterd by the English though....

There is a land far from this distant shore
Where heather grows and Highland Eagles soar
There is a land that will live ever more
Deep in my heart, my Bonnie Scotland

Though I serve so far away
I still see your streams, cities and dreams
I can`t wait until the day
When I`ll come home once more

So Lord keep me from the harm of war
Through all the dangers and the battles roar
Keep me safe until I`m home once more
Home to my own in Bonnie Scotland
