Skara Brea

Lyrics by Fraser McGill
Music by Fraser McGill, Drew Mayo, Kristen Vandling & Colin Hall

As we walked along by the lochside
The trawling boats lie dormant by the shore
On the pier, the nets lie up in tangles
As the fishing industry fades into lore

Skara Brae, please let me whisper
'cos the rocks here don't melt with the sun
Skara Brae I've never left you
And I'll be with you when my working days are done

As we sit and huddle by the stone walls
The pipers they were playing El Alamein
And the cross it stood there to remind me
While the lighthouse stands there ghostly in the rain

Skara Brae, please let me whisper
'cos the rocks here don't melt with the sun
Skara Brae I've never left you
And I'll be with you when my working days are done
