The Free Soil of Scotland

A man's still a man to me

Arbroath made it right to be free
The voices of freedom are calling to me
Saying stand for the free soil of Scotland

Be it land of your heart, or the land of your birth
It was right from the start, and it spread o'er the Earth
Their voices live in us and cry to be free
Saying stand for the free soil of Scotland

The Bruce, brave Wallace, Dundee
I still hear them calling to me
Their voices cry freedom and ring to the sea
Saying stand for the free soil of Scotland

Be it land of your heart, or the land of your birth
They can't keep us apart, though we live o'er the Earth
We've a right to the land and a right to be free
I will stand for the free soil of Scotland

The past, it calls to me
To honor that brave legacy
When the voices cry freedom, I know where I'll be
I will stand for the free soil of Scotland

Be it land of your heart, or the land of your birth
We will ne'er be apart, though we live o'er the Earth
My heart is for Scotland and my spirit is free
I will stand for the free soil of Scotland

Be it land of your heart, or the land of your birth
They can't keep us apart, though we live o'er the Earth
While my body draws breath I will live to be free
I will stand for the free soil of Scotland
I will rise for the free soil of Scotland
I will live for the free soil of Scotland
May we live ... to see the free soil of Scotland
