It'll Aye Be Hame Tae Me

(EAST LINTON)

THE WIND IT BLAW'S,AN' THE RAIN SURE FAW'S
O'ER THIS COUNTRY O' OORS
I WIDNA CHEINGE IT FOR ONIETHING
ALTHO IT HAS A FEW FLAWS
BUT SEEIN' THE VIEWS AN' COUNTRYSIDE
THE FLAWS WE KIN SET ASYDE
WI IT'S ROLLIN' HILLS AN HAEDDER CLAD GLENS
IT'S SIC A SICHT TAE SEE
BONNIE SCOTLAND, BONNIE SCOTLAND
IT'LL AYE BE HAME TAE ME


WI' THE SKIRL O' THE PIPES
AN' THE WAGGLE O' THE KILT
A PICTURE THARE ISNA ONY FINER
THAY MIDGIES THO' UR A DAMN WEE PEST
THAY'LL SUIN HAE YE' FUR DENNER
THE HEILAND'S UR JIST BYSPALE
WI'THAIR SNAW CAPPED BEN'S AN A'
COME AN' SEE FUR YERSEL
A THINK YE' WULL AGREE
IT'S SIC A SICHT TAE SEE
BONNIE SCOTLAND, BONNIE SCOTLAND
YE'LL AYE BE HAME TAE ME.....
