Guitar 1 Intro, Part 3

[Verse]
     Walk alone in the hills
     With the wind in your face
     It feels good to be proud and be free and a race
     That is part of a Clan
     And to live on high lands
     And the air that you breathe
     So pure and so clean

Guitar 1 Intro, Part 3
     All alone in the hills
     With the wind in your hair
     With a longing to feel
     Just to be free

[Verse]
     Is it right to believe
     In the need to be free?
     It’s a time when you die and without asking why
     Can’t you see what they do?
     They are grinding us down
     They are taking our land
     That belongs to the Clans

Guitar 1 Intro, Part 3
     Not alone with a dream
     Just a want to be free
     With a need to belong
     I am a Clansman

[Bridge]
     Freedom!
     Freedom!
     Freedom!
     Freedom!

Heavy Verse
     It’s a time wrought with fear
     It’s a land wrought with change
     If ancestors could hear what is happening now
     They would turn in their graves
     They would all be ashamed
     That the land of the free
     Was written in chains

Heavy Chorus
     And I know what I want
     When the timing is right
     Then I’ll take what is mine
     I am the Clansman

Heavy Verse
     And I swear to defend
     And we’ll fight to the end
     And I swear that I’ll never be taken alive
     And I know that we’ll stand
     We’ll fight for our land
     And I swear that my bairns
     Will be born free

Heavy Chorus
     And I know what I want
     When the timing is right
     Then I’ll take what I want
     I am the Clansman

[Bridge]
     Freedom!
     Freedom!
     Freedom!
     Freedom!
