Parcel Of Rogues
I have been looking for a version of this song as sung by Luke Kelly, and could not find it. So I figured it out, it sounds right to me. But open for any suggestions to it. F C Fareweel to all our Scottish fame F G F C Fareweel our ancient glory F C Fareweel even to our Scottish name F G F C So famed in martial story C F C G Now Sark rins over the Solway sands F G C F And Tweed rins to the Ocean. C G F C F To mark where Englands province stands C G F C Sic a parcel of rogues in a nation What force or guile could not subdue Thro' many warlike ages Is wrought now by cowards few For hireling traitor's wages The English steel we could disdain Secure in valor's station But we're bought and we're sold for English gold Sic a parcel of rogues in a nation O would 'ere I had seen the day That treason thus could sell us My auld grey head had lain in clay With Bruce and loyal Wallace But pith and power to my last hour I'll make this declaration That we're bought and sold for English gold Sic a parcel of rogues in a nation.
