We shall always lead by the silvery Tweed
We’re the first true Border Toun
And we can proudly say this is Coldstream’s day
We’re a jewel in Scotia’s croon.
So let us all rejoice, with a mighty voice
As we see our banners blow
For white and blue is staunch and true
And Coldstream leads them all.
At early o’clock on Flodden day
We leave for yonder battlefield
The Streamer heads two hundre horse
With Standards Proud he leads.
O’ Castrum Toon O’ Castrum Toon
Ye’ll aye be dear tae me
Though I’ve wandered for o’ ower the world
My heart is aye with thee.
Across the bridge and ower the Tweed
The toon we leave behind
It’ll no be long before we see
Yon monument sae fine.
The Piper plays a lamont sae sad
Above the Boggy Palinsburn
Where both nations mon, there they lie
And in peace we will return.
O’ Flodden Field, O’ Flodden Field
Sae quiet and sae still
There never was such a bloody day
On yonder Branxton Hill.
"We shall follow the Streamer wherever he may go,
over hill and over dale wherever he may roam,
we shall never forsake him,
he'll be our pride and joy,
for it's up it's up wi' the streamer oor ane true Castrum boy,
for it's up it's up wi' the streamer oor ane true Castrum boy!
