Sorry, Alan, I should have directed you to the DT for the song I mentioned. If I find the words to the Battle of Bannockburn in my file at home and nobody else has posted them before me you'll find the words here on monday. Wolfgang

It's called "Bannockburn", words by Matt McGinn and it's on the Corries Live From Scotland, Volume 4. If you don't have the words by this time I'll try to figure them out for you but don't guarantee exact transcription.

BANNOCKBURN
(Matt McGinn)

In 1314, the twenty-fourth of June
King Eddie says "We're ready now to steal the stone of Scone"
He brought his biggest army but discovered he'd backed a duece
At Bannockburn he found that he was up against a Bruce

cho: Well, we raised our pipes and the English kept a-coming
But they werena quite so happy when we gie'd the pipes a blaw
Struck once more, they began a-running
Ready steady Eddie, go, it's time to shoot the craw

Well, we had a bowl of porridge and a wee bit pinch of salt
We had a dram of whisky and it was the finest malt
We each wore a tammy and we wore the philibegs
Eddie was in terror when he seen the hairy legs

Now poor King Edward, nearly had a fit
When he seen his cavalry falling doon a pit
His men looked up from the trap that Bruce had built
And they were shocked to find out what was worn beneath the kilt

He sent for his archers, a group of country folk
They erred and they purred, what a funny way they spoke
With those archers Eddie had a go
But they were as effective as the ones on radio

On the fastest horse that you ever saw
King Eddie went a-racing o'er the Border and awa
He was fond of Scotland, but he never did return
He didn't like the welcome that he got at Bannockburn

Surely a record? An answer to a question asked 13 years ago?!
