( Tune : Michael Row the Boat Ashore )
Thurso Berwick & Co
Chorus: Shout to the man in Number 10 - Independence !
Scotland will be free again -
River Tweed is a great divide - Independence !
Take your stand on the Scottish
side - Independence ! ( &c )
Good for the brown man, black man too - Independence !
Good for me and it's good for
you - Independence ! ( &c )
Now Wallace did not die in vain - Independence !
Neither did great John MacLean -
Independence ! ( &c )
Footnote : With the launch
of the 'Talking Independence' campaign by SNP Convener John Swinney at
Saturday's ( 2 March 2002 ) SNP National Council meeting in Perth -
perhaps it is time to dust down and revamp the pro-Independence songs
from the 1960s.After all the songs from Thurso Berwick, Alastair
MacDonald, Susan Haworth and Jimmy Ross did help to win the Hamilton
By-Election in 1967 !
