Teresa, this snippet from 'The Tartan Army (cyber) Songbook may help a bit, including the link to the Corries site.

The Flower of Scotland

Written by Roy Williamson of the Corries, who sadly died a few years ago. It has been sung for us before matches by Ronnie Browne (the other half of the Corries) and Fish (of Marillion and the seaside). Whilst politicians tell us we can't have National Anthem for Scotland because it might offend the Queen, the people keep singing this song. Normally verses 1 and 3 are sung. There is a Corries HomePage here at http://www.corries.com/ where you can hear them sing the first verse of the song.

Regards, John
