"Caledonia" as written by and Bert Jansch....
Last night as I lay sleeping
A dream, it came to me
I thought I heard a piper play
The sweetest melody

People gathered round a dancing
And singing so merrily
They're all singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free
Singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free

From the busy heart of Glasgow
To Lochranza by the sea
O're the water to Kintyre
The pretties pace you'll ever see

To the pubs and bars of Oban
They're all proud of their old country
They're all singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free
Singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free

On the road to Drumnadrochid
There's music everywhere
For the piper plays for Nessie
A sweet and tender air

Through Glengarry's running rivers
Cascading to the sea
To the tranquility of Ullapool
Ah, now that's Scatland to me
Come wild and windy weather, Caledonia, ever free

When the fiddle plays from Scotland
They hears the piper's song
They came o'erthe sea to join him
They danced and they sang along

From the granite city southward
On the road to bonny Dundee
They're all singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free
Singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free

Now if you ever come to Scotland
Ever come to visit my home
You can hear the piper playing
Standing all alone

For he plays from Edinburgh Castle
That looks out to the sea
He'll have you singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free
Singing and dancing, Caledonia, ever free
