"McCalman Singular" (Greentrax CDTRAX269)

Will you walk the Shian road again
And gaze out from Ardselma across the wooded glen
To see the Cregan mist burn off the ben
And will you walk the Shian road again

So hard the leaving
So hard the leaving the hills and the glens
So strong the feeling.
So strong the feeling he'd never return
To Shian again

The young man raced the sun across the sky
But older now he stopped there, the breeze a gentle sigh
I heard it whisper, "Stay my father stay
And walk the lonely Shian road today"

Remember when the days burned long and bright
But now the night is falling and by its fading light
I'll take you to the highlands again
And walk the lonely Shian road again
