Robert Burns

    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!
