Westering Home

Credited to Hugh S Robertson from a traditional tune (Muckin’ of Geordies’ Byre” .

And it’s westering home with a song in the air

Light in me eye and it’s goodbye to care

Laughter of love and a welcoming there

Bride of my heart, my own love

Tell me a tale of the Orient gay

Tell me of riches that come from Cathay

Ah it is grand to awaken each day

And find yourself nearer to Isla

Where are the folk like the folks of the west

Canty and Couthy an kind to the best

There I would lay me and there I would rest

At home with folks and Isla
