Freeman Stand or Freeman Fall

Scots Wha Hae
by Robbie Burns, June 24, 1786

Scots wha hae wi' Wallace bled
Scots wham Bruce have aften led
Welcome tae your gory bed
Or tae victory

Now's the day and now's the hour
See the front of battle lour
And see approach proud Edwar'd pow'r
Chains and slaverie

Wha'll be a traitor knave?
Wha will fill a coward's grave?
Wha sae base as be a slave?
Let 'im turn and flee

Wha for Scotland's king and law
Freedom's sword will strongly draw
Freeman stand or freeman fa'
Let 'im 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 usurper low
Tyrants fall wi' every foe
And liberty's in every blow
Let us do or die
