Scots Abroad: Stories of Scottish Emigration – Keeping identity

O Scotia dear

(Tune: 'Dainty Davie')

O Scotia dear thowgh far awa
Some times a silent tear will fa'
Whin'eer we fondly think on a'
We left in Caledonia
Our fathers home we cant forget
Thy sun though clouded is not set
Bright may it shine in glory yet
Like lang syne Calledonia


Ever happy may thow be
Caledonia Caledonia
Ever virtious ever free
Dear Caledonia
