The Russian Host

Verse 1: ‘Scotland, aroused from her slumbers, / By the war-drnm which beats the alarms, / Ne’er afraid for to face hostile numbers, / When arrayed in her wild warlike arms. / Since the days of the great Julius Caesar, / Till Alma’s heights stood in view, / There the Russian host did surrender, / To the lads with their bonnets sae blue! / Three cheers for the bonnets, &c.’ for more click here
