      Dear Everyone,

      Recently Nayak mentioned the song that the Scots sometimes sing,
      called Scotland the Brave. I looked up the words, and here it is in
      its entirety.

      Scotland the Brave

      Hark when the night is falling
      Hear! hear the pipes are calling,
      Loudly and proudly calling,
      Down thro' the glen.
      There where the hills are sleeping,
      Now feel the blood a-leaping,
      High as the spirits of the old Highland men.

      Towering in gallant fame,
      Scotland my mountain hame,
      High may your proud standards gloriously wave,
      Land of my high endeavour,
      Land of the shining river,
      Land of my heart for ever,
      Scotland the brave.

      High in the misty mountains,
      Out by the purple highlands,
      Brave are the hearts that beat
      Beneath Scottish skies.
      Wild are the winds to meet you,
      Staunch are the friends that greet you,
      Kind as the love that shines from fair maiden's eyes.

      Towering in gallant fame,
      Scotland my mountain hame,
      High may your proud standards gloriously wave,
      Land of my high endeavour,
      Land of the shining river,
      Land of my heart for ever,
      Scotland the brave.

      Far off in sunlit places,
      Sad are the Scottish faces,
      Yearning to feel the kiss
      Of sweet Scottish rain.
      Where tropic skies are beaming,
      Love sets the heart a-dreaming,
      Longing and dreaming for the homeland again.

      Towering in gallant fame,
      Scotland my mountain hame,
      High may your proud standards gloriously wave,
      Land of my high endeavour,
      Land of the shining river,
      Land of my heart for ever,
      Scotland the brave.
