westering home lyrics – corries

westering home

g
westering home and a song in the air,
c g c d
light in the eye and it’s goodbye to care.
g c g
laughter of love and a welcoming there,
d c g
isle of my heart my own one.
g d
tell me of lands of the orient gay,
g c d
speak of the riches and joys of carthay,
g d
oh but it’s grand to be waking each day,
g d c g
and find yourself nearer to isla.
cho.
g d
where are the folk like the folk of the west?
g c d
canty and couthy and kindly the best!
g d
there i would hide me and there i would rest.
g d c g
at home with my own folk on isla.
cho.
