Forward tae Glasgow Green we'll march in guid order:
Wull grips his banner weel (that boy isna blate).
Aye there, man that's Johnny noo -- that's him there, the bonnie fechter.
Lenin's his fiere, lad, an' Leibknecht's his mate.
"The John MacLean March," H. Henderson
[Does anyone have John MacLean's birthday? (1879-1923) Or the exact date
of the famous Return to Scotland? I was saddened to find him wholly
ignored in the history books and encyclopedias available to me. Not even
a mention! I'm aware that there are several biographies of the man -
none locally available.]
