Lay the Proud Usurpers Low

Graphic Design

A design for the old Scottish song, Scots Wha Hae. Originally created for a t-shirt.


Scots wha hae wi’ Wallace bled
Scots wham Bruce has aften led
Welcome tae your gory bed
Or tae victory
Now’s the day and now’s the hour
See the front o’ battle lour
See approach proud Edward’s power
Chains and slavery

Wha will be a traitor knave
Wha can fill a coward’s grave
Wha sae base as be a slave
Let him turn and flee
Wha for Scotland’s King and law
Freedom’s sword will strongly draw
Freeman stand or freeman fa’
Let him follow me.

By oppression’s woes and pains
By your sons in servile chains
We will drain oor dearest veins
But they shall be free
Lay the proud usurpers low
Tyrants fall in every foe
Liberty’s in every blow
Let us do or dee
