Capercaillie – Both Sides The Tweed lyrics

What's the spring breathing jasmine and rose
What's the summer with all it's gay train
What's the splendour of autumn to those
Who've bartered their freedom for gain.

Let the love of our land's sacred rights
To the love of our people succeed
Let friendship and honour unite
And flourish on both sides of the Tweed.

No sweetness the senses can cheer
Which corruption and bribery bind
No brightness the sun can e'er clear
For honour's the sum of the mind.

Let virtue distinguish the brave
Place riches in lowest degree
Think them poorest who can be a slave
Them richest who dare to be free
