Am I missing something? The site Manitas linked to had a number of songs by Gordon Menzies, but I didn't see "1320" (or at least I didn't figure out how to get to the song). Can somebody take me by the hand and lead me - or, better yet, post the lyrics here?
Are "1320" Rolling Home CD) and "The 1320 Declaration" (Independent Scots CD)the same song?

Is this it?

The 1320 Declaration
(Gordon Menzies?)

The year was 1320, in the Abbey of Arbroath
Where the sons of sovereign Scotland, first took their solemn oath.
For freedom we'll endeavour, for liberty we'll strive
To England, No Surrender!
While 100 true Scots survive!

On that glorious occasion, was Scotland's future writ
To foreign domination, we never shall submit
For freedom we'll endeavour, for liberty we'll strive
To England, No Surrender!
While 100 true Scots survive!

The words of promise spoken, to calm our bitter steel
Like blades of grass lie broken, beneath the Saxon heel
For freedom we'll endeavour, for liberty we'll strive
To England, No Surrender!
While 100 true Scots survive!

But should our chosen fail us, and kneel at London's door
Lest treason should assail us, we'll take to the steel once more
For freedom we'll endeavour, for liberty we'll strive
To England, No Surrender!
While 100 true Scots survive!
For freedom we'll endeavour, for liberty we'll strive
To England, No Surrender!
While 100 true Scots survive!

Verified with lyrics on Gaberlunzie's Independent Scots CD.

I wrote this song in 1966, I think. The official title is The Declaration of Arbroath (1320), but it may not be the one you seek.

Declaration of Arbroath (1320)

Joe, I think my lyrics have been posted some time ago but here they are again:
Declaration of Arbroath: Lyrics Jim McLean, Melody an adaptation of Follow me up to Carlow. (1966)

DECLARATION OF ARBROATH
(Jim McLean)

In Thirteen-Twenty Scotland said,
Should England dare our soil to tread,
The blood will flow in rivers red,
Before capitulation.
No more will Scotland bow the knee,
To foreign prince who e're he be,
For come what may we'll aye be free,
From English domination.

Chorus :
Here's to the men who took the oath,
The Declaration of Arbroath,
Freedom and right, are causes both,
To save us from damnation.
Out with traitor, out with foe,
Give the Saxon blow for blow,
And freedom's brightest star shall glow,
Above the Scottish nation.

It's not for honour that we sigh,
Nor glory makes us long to die.
But liberty is Scotland's cry,
No English subjugation.
Our fathers didn't die in vain,
For while a hundred men remain,
No English king shall o'er us reign,
Stand up for Scotland's nation.

Too long we've played the tartan fool,
Too long we've bowed to English rule,
Too long we've cringed before John Bull,
Afraid of confrontation.
So heed the words from Bruce's pen,
Scotland must be free again,
Stand up the hundred Scottish men,
Who'll honour the Declaration.

The requestor specifically mentioned that he wanted a song sung by Gaberlunzie on their album "Rolling Home."

Allmusic.com lists this album. The full title is "Rolling Home: Live Frae the Briggs." Furthermore, it says the song is "1320," written by Gordon Menzies. I listened to a sound sample, and these were the words I heard:

"... of sovereign Scotland first took their solemn oath
For freedom we'll endeavor; for liberty we'll strive.
To England no surrender while one hundred true Scots survive."

That matches the lyrics Joe Offer posted above.

(Jim McLean: I would think you'd know, wouldn't you, whether Gaberlunzie had recorded your song?)
