"Rebellion" as written by and Chris/goettlich Boltendahl....
The clans are marching 'gainst the law
Bagpipers play the tunes of war
Death or glory I will find
Rebellion on my mind

The clans are marching 'gainst the law
Bagpipers play the tunes of war
Death or glory I will find
Rebellion on my mind

Rumours know
That rebellion will break out
Bonnie Prince Charles is in the highlands
To claim his crown no doubt
He raised his Standard at Glenfinnen
Calling to our pride
The Jacobites are gathering
I'll be at their side

Armed and ready stand
My rights I must defend
Steel is in my hand

The clans are marching 'gainst the law
Bagpipers play the tunes of war
Death or glory I will find
Rebellion on my mind

The town of Edinburgh
Fell soon in our hands
Defeated the English
At the Battle of Prestopans

Armed and ready stand
My rights I must defend
Steel is in my hand

The clans are marching 'gainst the law
Bagpipers play the tunes of war
Death or glory I will find
Rebellion on my mind

The clans are marching 'gainst the law
Bagpipers play the tunes of war
Death or glory I will find
Rebellion on my mind
