The Words To The Song Flower Of Scotland




This song was written by Roy Williamson of The Corries (his singing partner was Ronnie Browne) and has been adopted as the unofficial National Anthem of Scotland. It is often played at sporting events and sung by the players and the crowd. It is now commonly played instead of Scotland The Brave.


O Flower of Scotland
When will we see your life again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.




The hills are bare now,
And autumn leaves lie thick and still
O'er land that is lost now,
Which those so dearly held
That stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again.


Those days are past now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again!
That stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again.


O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again
