Real Mckenzies – The Night The Lights Went Out In Scotland lyrics

We're lookin' back to see
The eighteenth century
Talkin' bout the shit that went down
After the fall of culloden
That's when prince charlie ran away
The dragons came, they hacked and slayed
Yeah they burned 'em out

Well I'm not laying the blame
On anybody alive today
But the crimes and lies in history shout
About the night the lights went out

After endless heinous deeds
No one was safe
Not a man or a laddie
Not a woman or a lassie
With blooded cold steel hands
They began
To clear the highlands of their nobel clans

Well I'm not laying the blame
On anybody alive today
But the crimes and lies in history shout
About the night the lights went out
The night the lights went out in Scotland
The night the lights went out
Yeah the night the lights
The night the lights x2
Went out.

Well I'm not laying the blame
On anybody alive today
But the crimes and lies in history shout
About the night the lights went out
The night the lights went out in Scotland
The night the lights went out
Yeah the night the lights
The night the lights x2
Went out.
