Tune of the Day: For These Are My Mountains

Traditional Scottish tune

The lyrics to this popular Scottish song were written in the 1960s by actor Jimmy Copland.

For fame and for fortune I wandered the earth
And now I've come back to the land of my birth
I've brought back my treasures but only to find
They're less than the pleasures I first left behind

For these are my mountains and this is my glen
The braes of my childhood will know me again
No land's ever claimed me tho' far I did roam
For these are my mountains and I'm going home
