fareweel to a’ our scottish fame,
fareweel our ancient glory!
fareweel ev’n to the scottish name.
sae famed in martial story!
now sark rins over salway sands,
an’ tweed rins to the ocean,
to mark where england’s province stands —
o, would, or i had seen the day
that treason thus could sell us,
my auld grey head had lien in clay
wi’ bruce and loyal wallace!
but pith and power, till my last hour
i’ll mak this declaration :-
‘we’re bought and sold for english gold’–
such a parcel of rogues in a nation!
