Can you hear the drums
Sound out the heartbeat
Sound out the rhythm
Song of the land?
And can you hear the drums
Sound out the blood-beat
Sound out the war-cry
Call for the stand?
Can you hear the pipes
as they skirl o’er the heather
waking the ghosts of long before?
And can you hear the pipes
as they call out the warriors
Calling the brave ones on to war?
Can you hear the song, the song of the people
the song of the hills, of the lochs and the glens
Of the streams and the rivers and the valleys and the heights
Of the sea and the sky and the land
And our land
The drums and the pipes and the voices of the singers
Carry on, carry on, down the valley, down the years
Singing out, singing proud of a time not forgotten
Singing out as we march to the calling of the spears
