Em C G Fareweel to a' our Scottish fame, Am D C Em Fareweel our ancient glory Em C G Fareweel ev'n to the Scottish name, Am D C Em Sae famed in martial story G Em C G Now Sark rins over Solway sands G D C Em An Tweed rins to the ocean G Em C G To mark where England's province stands - G D C Em Sic a parcel o rogues in a nation! Em C G What force or guile could not subdue Am D C Em Through many warlike ages Em C G Is wrought now by a coward few Am D C G For hireling traitor's wages G Em C G The English steel we could disdain G D C Em Secure in valour's station G Em C G But English gold has been our bane - G D C Em Sic a parcel o rogues in a nation! Em C G O would, or I had seen the day Am D C Em That Treason thus could sell us, Em C G My auld grey head had lien in clay Am D C G Wi Bruce and loyal Wallace! G Em C G But pith and power, till my last hour G D C Em I'll mak this declaration G Em C G We're bought and sold for English gold - G D C Em Sic a parcel o rogues in a nation!
