The use of tartan patriotism and stereotypical Scottish humour goes back to Sir Harry Lauder and music hall songs. In the 1960s this strand was continued by entertainer Andy Stewart. He was born in Glasgow in 1933, the son of a teacher. He moved to Arbroath as a child and then trained as an actor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.

A Scottish Soldier" was Andy Stewart's follow up to his novelty song "Donald Where's Your Troosers?" In a TV interview, Stewart said the idea came to him in a public house; he wrote two verses and sang it the next day. It was inspiration, he said. The melody is taken from the Scottish folk song "The Green Hills Of Tyrol," which itself is taken from "La Tua Danza Sì Leggiera," a chorus from Rossini's Guillaume Tell (William Tell) opera. The song is about a soldier who finds himself fighting in Tyrol, which is in Austria.

A Scottish Soldier" is a song written by Andy Stewart using the tune of "The Green Hills of Tyrol", which was transcribed by John MacLeod during the Crimean War from "La Tua Danza Sì Leggiera", a chorus part in the third act of Gioachino Rossini's 1829 opera Guglielmo Tell (William Tell). The song is about a dying Scottish soldier, wishing to return to the hills of his homeland rather than die in Tyrol. The song was one of two US chart entries by Andy Stewart
