Wallace Is With Us ©

Nick Dawson
Cambridgeshire, England
2004

1.
The English host has crossed the border
Edward has sent his army to slaughter,
To all of Scotland he'll give no quarter,
Who can save us now?

2.
Berwick has fallen, its children are drowned
Thrown in the river, never to be found
His legions are burning town by town
Who can save us now?

Chorus:
Down from the Highlands Wallace came
With brave fighting men who earn their fame
At Stirling Bridge they would end Edward's claim
And they will save us now, and they will save us now.

3.
With Suffolk and Norfolk the English advanced
Chressingham leading with sword and lance
On Scotland's bones he will lead the dance
Who can save us now?

4.
Wallace stood and let half them cross
Then with broad claymore he charged across
The English were crushed and many were lost
Wallace will save us now.

Chorus:

5.
The Scottish hearts beat strong and proud
And Edward's hordes were turned around
Their bodies lie like leaves on the ground
Wallace has saved us now.

6.
So, tyrant Edward, heed Scotland's name
Its land and people you'll never tame
Come one and all, we'll send you all hame
Cause Wallace is with us now.

Chorus: (As above, but ending - Wallace has saved us now.)
