Findo Gask sign on the A9 Lysander

Findo Gask    (2010)

 

Someone lives here, works and dances, your prehistoric stage

till footsteps on a Roman road lets history write another page

Findoc's church above the Earn helps to change the old beliefs

The woods of Gask give sanctuary as Wallace fights the thieves

 

One century's a day, a year's the blinkin' of an eye

 

Findo Gask your leaves are falling, should I come in Spring I'll see

Findo Gask fulfill her promise in the new life that is here

 

Charles Stuart dismounts and smiles, safe among his friends

He'll pass again in hushed farewell as this adventure ends

Lady Nairne looks back in tears and from them flow her songs

in quiet resurrection lifts the past where it belongs

 

One century's a day....

 

Findo Gask your leaves are falling....

 

Lysanders fly with German ghosts and circle o'er the Earn

phantoms from another war, and this is how we learn

Davey Pattison to Gerard Black, they all have worn your name

for us to flit around our tongues, like moths around a flame

 

One century's a day....

 

Findo Gask your leaves are falling, should I come in Spring I'll see

Findo Gask fulfill her promise in the new life that is here

 

Before I climb the ridge of Gask, I see the old familiar sign

and choose the road that takes me home, where all these roots entwine
