Is there for honest poverty
-1 3 -3 3 -1 2 3 -3

That hangs his head and a' that?
4 -4 -3 3 -1 2 2

The coward slave, we pass him by
-1 3 -3 3 -1 2 3 -3

We daur be puir for a' that.
4 -4 -3 3 2 -1 -1

For a' that, and a' that
4 -4 4 -5 -4 4 -4 -3

Our toils obscure, and a' that
4 -4 4 -5 -1 2 2

The rank is but the guinea's stamp
4 -4 4 -5 -4 6 -3 -3

The man's the gowd for a' that.
4 -4 -3 3 2 -1 -1

Ye see yon birkie ca'd a lord
Wha struts, and stares and a' that
Tho' hundreds worship at his word
He's but a coof for a' that.
For a' that, and a' that
His ribbon, star and a' that
the man o' independence mind
He looks and laughs at a' that.

A king can make a belted knight
A marquis, duke and a' that
But an honest man's aboon his micht
Gude faith, he maunna fa' all that
For a' that, and a' that
Their dignities and a' that
The pith o' sense and pride o' worth
Are higher ranks than a' that.

Then let us pray that come it may
As come it will for a' that
That sense and worth o'er a' the earth
May bear the gree and a' that
For a' that, and a' that
It's coming yet, for a' that
When man to man the world o'er
Shall brithers be for a' that.
