Scotland My Hame ©

Ian McCrae
Sydney, Australia

I'll walk the roads
The roads that I know,
In rain and sleet
Through frost and snow:

The wild winds blowing
Along the shores,
My heart is aching
For the land I adore.

As the peat fire burns
Deep down in my soul,
My heart is longing
To return to the fold:

Away in the background
Down by the river,
The bagpipes are playing
Scotland forever:

The sound of the pipes
Remain to this day,
My heart is in Scotland
Though far, far away:

I can hear voices
From long, long ago,
Their foot prints I'll follow
Wherever they go.

A tree by the roadside
Where I carved my name,
Scotland forever,
Scotland my Hame.
