Lyrics

The old ways are gone That have use for a man Who defended his lordship, Protecting his land. Oh, when times are a mess And went to die for his lord Now the soldiers of England Have taken his broadsword And there's fire in the glen There's fire in the glen, But no fire in the eyes Of our highland men. Now, the lord has a smile For the makers of graves For the builders of empires And keepers of slaves For he kept his great home Losing nothing but pride Now his kinsmen lay huddled All along the shoreside. And there's fire in the glen, There's fire in the glen, But no fire in the eyes Of our highland men. So beware of their banners And the general's lies There's no glory for the ppor man There's no glittering prize For we gave all we had And now our homes, they burned down And I cry out, "Republic And allegiance to no crown!" And there's fire in the glen, There's fire in the glen, But no fire in the eyes Of our highland men. There's fire in the glen, There's fire in the glen, But no fire in the eyes Of our highland men.
