ScottishVoice Non-BS: School songs (29) RE: Non-BS: School songs 31 Mar 04


Our school was founded in the late 1800s. (i forget exactly when - i should really know!!) but we had an amazing song! i still sing it when i get to the folk club in the town and everyone still remembers it.

The School Song (The Gordon Schools, Huntly)

By the storied walls of the Gordons hold
The rivers twine as the wind to the sea
Girt all around the circling hills
Is the schools of the tower and the Linden tree
where first we followed in learnings train
Where first we played in the sun and the rain

Oh proud is the fame of the Gordons name
on many a hill you shall find their graves
And theres many a lad by the tower who played
Has passed in the splendor that crowns the brave!
For freedom! For honour! Our loves resigned
Let us harken the message they leave behind.

When the river of time has borne us far
And we hear the voice of the calling sea
Let our hearts return in memorys hour
To the school of the tower and the Linden tree
Where first we followed in learnings train
Where first we played in the sun and the rain.

Never fails to get me going! Incase your wondering, Huntly is where the Clan Gordon stronghold was!
