Scots Wha Hae
There where the hills are sleeping, now feel the blood a-leaping, high as the spirits of the old Highland men. Towering in gallant fame, Scotland my mountain hame, high may your proud standards gloriously wave! Land of my high endeavour, land of the shining river, land of my heart for ever, Scotland The Brave. High in the misty Highlands out by the purple islands, brave are the hearts that beat beneath Scottish skies.
Wild are the winds to meet you, staunch are the friends that greet you, kind as the love that shines from fair maidens' eyes. Far off in sunlit places, sad are the Scottish faces, yearning to feel the kiss of sweet Scottish rain. Where are the tropics beaming, love sets the heart a-dreaming, longing and dreaming for the hameland again.

Just because something has become popular as a ring tone is no reason to denigrate the tune. Pipe bands will certainly play it, and as you point out, it may often be played at ceilidh dances, but in a session? It is certainly played at ceilis for the Gay Gordons. I played it myself just last week at a ceili mor. But as it is, a march and not as a reel.
How do you play it as a reel? I will also accept that it is not commonly played in sessions but to say flatly that this is not a sesion tune is not correct when clearly people on this list do play it in sessions even if rarely. Most of the tunes submitted to TheSession are a great resource for players, but the comment above from MBAC shows that we badly need some quality control. Where else could you do that? Doubtless, once the poster of the tune gets the correct version, he or she will play it in a good old traditional way.
I like it! It just depends what is either "fashionable" or, on the other hand, the accepted common repertoire may be very unfashionable and obscure to anyone else of a particular group of musicians. This is the setting I have most commonly heard, though I used to play a pipe version that stays within one octave, only going up to the D for the B part.
If you are a member of The Session, log in to add a comment. Membership is free, and it only takes a moment to sign up. ABC sheet music. This is a popular ring tone melody, but certainly not a session tune. Funnily enough, this got played at a session I went to last week. Scotland The Brave indeed. And an incomplete version too. Can someone post the abc for "Crazy Frog" please?
I wish you would. I get kids asking me to teach them that on the Whistle, all the time!The lyrics were written by Robert Burns inin the form of a speech given by Robert the Bruce before the Battle of Bannockburn inwhere Scotland maintained its sovereignty from the Kingdom of England.
Although the lyrics are by Burns, he wrote them to the traditional Scottish tune " Hey Tuttie Tatie " which, according to tradition, was played by Bruce's army at the Battle of Bannockburn, . According to tradition, the same theme was played in by the Franco-Scots army at the Siege of Orleans in front of Jeanne d'Arc.
The song, called "Marche des soldats de Robert Bruce" in France, belong to the traditional list of military musics and commemorates the long lasting Awld alliance between France and Scotland. As for the Battle of Bannockburn the theme really played was probably a traditional Scottish theme like Hey Tuttie Tatie. The tune tends to be played as a slow airbut certain arrangements put it at a faster tempo, as in the Scottish Fantasy by Max Bruchthe concert overture Rob Roy by Hector Berliozand the Real McKenzies ' punk rock rendition on their album Clash of the Tartans.
The song was sent by Burns to his publisher George Thomsonat the end of Augustwith the title Robert Bruce's March To Bannockburnand a postscript saying that he had been inspired by Bruce's 'glorious struggle for Freedom, associated with the glowing ideas of some other struggles of the same nature, not quite so ancient.
Muir was accused of sedition for allegedly inciting the Scottish people to oppose the government during the December convention of the Scottish ' Friends of the People Societyand was eventually sentenced to fourteen years' transportation to the convict settlement at Botany BayAustralia. Burns was aware that if he declared his Republican and Radical sympathies openly he could suffer the same fate.
It is notable that when Burns agreed to let the Morning Chronicleof 8 Maypublish the song, it was on the basis of 'let them insert it as a thing they have met with by accident, and unknown to me. The song was included in the edition of A Select Collection of Original Scottish Airs for the Voiceedited by George Thomsonbut Thomson preferred the tune " Lewie Gordon " and had Burns add to the fourth line of each stanzato suit.
In the edition, the original words and tune were restored. In the past, it was sung at the close of their annual national conference each year. The opening lyrics of the song are the keywords for the posthypnotic-suggestion programming of United Nations Exploratory Force soldiers in Joe Haldeman 's military science fiction novel The Forever Warintended to make them particularly aggressive in battle.
