I wrote this to be song to the tune of Highland Cathedral, almosts as an alternative national anthem; however, it can also be read as a poem. I hope you like it.

I am a Scot

I am a Scot, and I will fight for you

True to the end, I will see it through

Highlands, Lowlands, Borders, Islands too

I am a Scot, my heart belongs to you

 

Seeking our right, we must now go forth

Steady on course, for all our worth

A miner’s courage and a steelman’s will

Following a destiny we must fulfil

 

But now’s the day and now’s the time

A man’s a man for auld lang syne

Freedom come all ye, on our bonnie banks

No more the rogues in our nation

 

All creeds and cultures, the Scot’s family

All together, we will always be

Hand in hand for Caledonia

Seeking a liberty, for Alba

 

I am a Scot, and I will fight for you

True to the end, I will see it through

Highlands, Lowlands, Borders, Islands too

I am a Scot, my heart belongs to you
