Killin bridge

The Road To Killin   ( 1973 )

 

Far away memories are callin on me

a warm and a special one I welcome in

It's bringing a place

that I almost call home

a bridge o'er a river, the gates of Killin

 

Do you know how you held me

when I had to go

warming my memories over the years

lifting my dreams through

these grey lowland skies

easy you slip through my nights

and you're here, for me

 

   Where have I been so long,

      I'm back at your door

needing the time I don't own any more

Why has it taken me so long to begin

heading back homeward on the road to Killin

 

I shouldn't make promises I'm not free to keep

but once in a while you'll see me on your brig

watchin' a bairnie skip ower the fa's

entranced by their magic the way I once was

 

Where have I been so long....

   Fidycat

I spent an

unforgettable

year in this

enchanting

place when

I was young
