Release information

length: 1:58
I am the Lion Wallace saw
The same dour lion nane may thraw
Warder of old Scotland's law
I am the lion Wallace saw.
Centuries and ages flown, what hae they but honours thrown
Round my rugged brow and crown, time ne'er steals away.
I stand up to a' declare, Scotland's wheal and power my care
Take this warning, foes beware, bide awa frae me:
Many ages I hae seen, Scotland's royal roost I've been
Freedom's stronghold staunch, severe, bold and wheal for aye
Freedom is the lions aim, freedom for the lions ane
Match the lion in his den, or let freedom be.

Here I stand and watch for aye, roar the hour out day by day,
Freedom strong to sound the sway, from far sea to sea.
Freedom is the lions aim, freedom for the lions ane
Match the lion in his den, or let freedom be.
