Traditional Scottish Songs
- Westering Home
And it's westering home, and a song in the air, Light in the eye, and it's goodbye to care. Laughter o' love, and a welcoming there, Isle of my heart, my own one.
Tell me o' lands o' the Orient gay,
Speak o' the riches and joys o' Cathay; Eh, but it's grand to be wakin' ilk day To find yourself nearer to Isla.
Where are the folk like the folk o' the west?
Canty, and couthy, and kindly, the best. There I would hie me and there I would rest At hame wi' my ain folk in Isla.
