Carry Me (Across The Ocean)

Lyrics:

I remember the day I left my home
I had no choice, I had to go
Fuadach nan Gaidheal am goirt agus searbh
The blood is strong and heart is Highland

Across the sea, over rugged land
Looking for work and a place to sleep
Feelings of home were always with me
Of friends and family left behind

Carry me, carry me across the ocean
Back to my home in the hills
Where as a child I played with my brothers
By the Sannox in the Northern glen

I often think when I'm alone
Of the Arran run rig far away
Does the erne still soar high above
The turquoise waves of Sannox Bay?

The Caledonia lies stormbound on the Lawrence
Waiting for God to set her free
Slowly gliding, river widening
Her final journey homeward without me

Carry me, carry me across the ocean
Back to my home in the hills
Where as a child I played with my brothers
By the Sannox in the Northern glen
