Scots what ha'e wi' Wallace bled (who have with) 
Scots wham Bruce has aften led (whom Bruce has often) 
Welcome tae yer gory bed 
Or to victory 

Now's the day and now' the hour 
See the front o' battle lour 
See approach proud Edward's power 
Chains and slavery 

Wha will be a traitor knave? (who) 
Wha can fill a coward's grave? 
Wha sae base as be a slave? (so) 
Let him turn and flee 

Wha for Scotland's King and Law 
Freedom's sword will strongly draw 
Freeman stand or Freeman fa' (fall) 
Let him follow me 

By oppression's woes and pains 
By our sons in servile chains 
We will drain oor dearest veins 
But they shall be free. 

Lay the proud usurpers low 
Tyrants fall in every foe 
Liberty's in every blow 
Let us do or die 

Scots wha ha'e with Wallace bled 
Scots wham Bruce has aften led 
Welcome to your gory bed 
Or to victory
