: These Are My Mountains by Unknown
For fame and for fortune I wandered the earth And now I've come back to the land of my birth I've brought back my treasures but only to find They're less than the pleasures I first left behind For these are my mountains and this is my glen
The braes of my childhood will know me again No land's ever claimed me tho' far I did roam For these are my mountains and I'm going home The burn by the road sings at my going by
The whaup overhead wings with welcoming cry The loch where the scart flies at last I can see It's here that my heart lies it's here I'll be free Kind faces will meet me and welcome me in
And how they will greet me my ain kith and kin The night round the ingle old sangs will be sung At last I'll be hearing my ain mother tongue.
