Last Sound

Skirl of pipes

Marchin’ step

Go’on yersel!

Can’t beat it!

Scots wha hae

Wi’ Wallace led

Never shall retreat it!

 

Now we get the marchin’ drum

Life returns this mornin’

Come away now come away

Time! A new day dawning

 

A lonesome piper at the end

Will sound a final chorus

‘Sleep, dearie, sleep’ will fill the air

Then life dear life afore us
