They March - Home at Last

Resplendent in their uniforms
Led by the band of bagpipes and drums
They march - home at last

The musicians in their uniforms of tartan
Playing " there was a soldier a scottish soldier"
They march

Proud faces of white and brown
Looking happy without a frown
They march

The police stop the traffic
For these brave men to march through
They march

The people cheer their soldiers home
Welcome home they shout to them
They march

Some people care not and push their way through
Forgetting the trauma these lads have been through
They March

Its Glasgow and The Scots Guards are home
George Square will never be the same
They March

They have been in afghanistan
Fighting for what, for something insane
They March

Helmand Province has been there home
6 long months in No Mans Land they roamed
They March

Remembering the ones that have died
Came home earlier in a box instead
They March

Welcome home lads . We salute you.
Home at last
