FIERY CROSS
Gordon Menzies

Heard ye the news on the wind
Heard ye the news on the wind
Clansmen come forth for the Prince in the north
Heard ye the news in the wind. 

Chorus
Caithness Sutherland Cromarty and Ross
Follow the Fiery Cross.

Saw ye the sign in the sky
Saw ye the sign in the sky
In hundreds and tens come the loyal Highland men
Saw ye the sign in the sky.

Saw ye the Highlands awake
Saw ye the Highlands awake
From Lewis and Skye with their guns and powder dry
Saw ye the sign in the sky.

Saw ye the light in their eye
Saw ye the light in their eye
Stand if ye dare, aye, Sassenach beware
Saw ye the light in their eye.


Heard ye the skirl o’ the pipe
Heard ye the skirl o’ the pipe
Swing your claymore let them hear your battle roar
Charles Edward Stuart he has come.

Caithness Sutherland Cromarty and Ross
Follow the Fiery, Fiery Fiery,
Follow the Fiery Cross.

Footnote:  To commemorate the 260th anniversary of Prince Charles Edward Stewart’s arrival in Scotland in July 1745, a braw song by Gordon Menzies, who along with his singing partner Robin Watson form Scotland’s premier folk duo Gaberlunzie.  More than 30 years ago the song featured on their first ever LP Brave Words ‘N Fightin’ Talk when Jimmy Macdonald was the third member of the group.  It was re-released in 2000 on CD and is still available.  To purchase this great CD visit www.gaberlunzie.com.
