Heart of Midlothian ©
Sung by Andy Stewart, on Capitol Records 10320
In the capital of Scotland, by the great kirk of St. Giles
There lies a heart for all to see within the Royal Mile
Now many men have stood here, from the humble to the grand
And it's known as the Heart of Midlothian.
It's a heart that's ever beating, it's a heart that's ever high
It's the pride of Scotland's glory, and it's fame will never die
On the spot within the Royal Mile with pride let Scotsmen stand
For here is the Heart of Midlothian.
To the west there stands a castle, famed in age old history
And to the east a palace fair and royal yet to see
While north, south, east, and west, you'll find you're in your native land
When you stand at the Heart of Midlothian
Repeat Chorus twice
