Rosslyn. ( Words and music D. Gilfillan.)


If you don’t believe Di Vinci 

come along and I’ll convince ye

I’ll tell you o’ some history that will thrill ye ta the bone

There’s Celtic christian, pagan rites 

there’s masons and their’s Templar knights

Come to Rosslyn chapel 

for it’s written there in stone

It’s a fascinating engagement 

to be told of things so ancient

Laid out in fine arrangement 

come along and have a look

You can do it at a saunter 

as around the place ye wander

It will make you think and ponder 

Someone should write a book !!

There’s green men growing old

As the seasons do unfold

Telling stories yet untold

Make of it what you wish

There are theory’s written of the craft

Some that are plainly daft 

Other’s that will make you laugh 

Most of them are rubbish

You may think it all authentic

Or you may be a sceptic

Or simply enjoy the rhetoric

In tales of days gone by

You may seek the holy grail

And your hotfoot on it’s trail

And your thinking you may prevail

Well at least you can give it a try

Here’s something I mistook

Cause if you care to look

They’re selling Dan Browns book

In the shop at Rosslyn Chapel

His writing was a sin

It’s enough to make you grin

By Christ they’re packing the tourist in

So blasphemy nae hassle 

There are Europeans and Asians

And folk from every nation

Chinese and Japanese 

Stand beneath the roof of stars

There are upset theologians 

Gregorians and historians

Some of them Singaporeans

There’s bus loads coming frae Mars

So you’ve read it in the papers 

About the Rosslyn capers

Scrolls and secret chambers

Hidden somewhere underground

It’s a repository full of Allegory 

Covering each and every category

I state it categorically 

There’s secrets still to be found
