Scotland is Her Name by Albannach

Scotland is Her Name by Albannach (Sung By Jacquie Holland)



You wrapped her up in iron chains
You thought you'd tied her up
You placed a ball around her feet
Thought you'd tame her like a pup
Your winter winds so dry, aye
You stripped her back so bare
And then u looked her in the eye
And said "it's only fair"

Now is it any wonder why
We treat you like we do
You strut about your mansions like
You didnae have a clue

But you know who your are, Aye
And you know what you've done
So don't act so innocent
When we rise and end your fun

What will you do when the drought comes forth
And you cannae bleed the north
What will you do when your lakes dry up
Will you turn and beg your pup

What will you do when your houses freeze
With nay oil in your seas
Aye will you turn in blind ignorance
And beg forgiveness please

So maybe now you realise
Just how you treated her
Cause now she's mighty and she's strong
It's too late to right your wrongs

But maybe in the future, Aye
She'll free you from your shame
And then you'll look in awe of her
Aye, Scotland is her name

Cause then you'll look in awe of her
Aye, Scotland is her name.
