Ribbon Road lyrics


Part of Me

O the rolling hills of home
where freedom's in the very air I breathe
where heather grows far and free
wide and true, they're part of me

O the memories go back
the lonely wind blows harsh across the fell
the dreams I dreamt are past and gone
time moved on, they're part of me

Chorus
Standing here by stony cairn
I oft think of thee, my bonny bairn
you're in the fabric of the fells
love weaves it's mystic hold upon me yet

As the swaledale rakes the fells
relentlessly the seasons pass along
the sun burns strong and then it's gone
you're calling me in silent song

O the openness of home
where wildness is the very heart of me
the peaty floughs I know so well
the fox-holes stell, they're part of me

O the memories flow back
the lonely wind blows harsh across the fell
the dreams I dreamt are past and gone
time moved on, they're part of me
