4. The Auld Grey Toun


Kings and queens came here to stay
Courts, processions had their day
King Malcolm worshipped Margaret's ways
The auld grey toun was changing.
Carnegie plundered stateside steel
To keep his mother's spinning wheel
A glen, a hall, a swimming pool
The auld grey toun was changing


No more linen, no more mines

Or gable ends in crooked wynds
No more Kings to drink their wine
The auld grey toun was/is changing
Now Burgh, District, both have gone
The kingdom comes, a brand new throne
The provost's chain and gown have gone
The auld grey toun is changing
And Bruce's bones lie here today
The brave king's heart lies far away
Dunfermline's heart is here to stay
The auld grey toun is changing

No more linen, no more mines

Each year sees changes coming round
New life soon fills this auld grey toun
The sovereign line keeps marching down
The auld grey toun is changing

No more linen, no more mines

No more linen, no more mines
