Chorus:
Come now, gather now,
Here where the flowers grow!
White is the blossom
As the snow on the ben
Hear now freedom's call!
We'll make a solemn vow,
Now by the Roses of Prince Cherlie!

Fight again at Bannockburn,
Your battle-axe tae wield!
Fight wi' your grandsires
On Flooden's bloody field!
Fight at Culloden,
The Bonnie Prince tae shield!
Fight by the Roses of Prince Cherlie!
Chorus:

2. Spirits of the banished
In far and distant lands
Carved out a New World
With sweat and blood and hands
Return now in glory,
And on the silver sand,
Fight by the Roses of Prince Cherlie!
Chorus:

3. Tak' your strength frae the green fields
That blanket fields of coal
Ships frae the Clyde have
A nation in their hold!
The water-of-life some men need
Tae mak' them bold!
Black gold, and fishes frae the sea, man!
Chorus:

Chorus again:
