Kenneth McKellar - Granny's Highland Hame

Far away in the heilands, there stands a wee hoose
And its stand on the breest o' the brae
Where we played as laddies there long, long ago
And it seems it was just yesterday

I can still see old granny, a smile on her face
Just as sweet as the heather dew
When I kissed her good bye, wi' a tear in her eye,
Said, laddie, may god bless you

Where the heather bells are blooming
Just outside granny's door
Where as laddies there we played
In days of long ago
Neath the shadow of Ben Bhraggie
And Golspie's lordly stane
How I wish that I could see
My granny's heiland hame

In fancy again as I look o'er at Tain
When we played on the low Embro shore
From Dornoch to Skelbo, and roon by The Mound
Was a ramble we'd take o'er and o'er

And oft times we'd play, near the old quarry brae
Where the laddies and lassies meet
And with old granny's smile, to cheer all the while
We'd stroll in our wee bare feet

brae: hill
breest: breast
Golspies lordly stane: a monument to Duke Sutherland (lordly stane: grand statue) on top of Ben Bhraggie (pronounced: Vraggie)
heilands: highlands
hoose: house
wee: smal

Flower of Scotland sing-along lyrics


Flower of Scotland (Scottish Gaelic: Flr na h-Alba, Scots: Flouer o Scotland) is a Scottish song, used frequently at special occasions and sporting events. Although there is no official national anthem of Scotland, Flower of Scotland is one of a number of songs which unofficially fulfil this role, along with the older Scots Wha Hae, Scotland the Brave, and the more recent Highland Cathedral.It was written by Roy Williamson of the folk group the Corries, and presented in 1967, and refers to the victory of the Scots, led by Robert the Bruce, over England's Edward II at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.
