John Renbourn Sandwood Down to Kyle 1/2

Sandwood is in the far Northwest of Scotland. Kyle is the Kyle of Lochalsh. Dave has walked, climbed, scrambled, built and repaired dry stone walls over most of it and has certainly earned the right to his opinion.

On Monday morn as I went out, the wild birds for to see
I met a man along the road and asked for charity

Come home with me and take your fill and comfort you shall find
And tell me why you walk the road that leaves the hills behind

Oh time has spent the summer, sir, and soon the leaves will fall
And I hear the change within the wind that plays around your walls

For the bird must flee the winter, sir, she cannot stay behind
To build her nest upon the snow, nor can I look for mine

But if I’d have a hundred homes and dwell in each a while
I’d build them all along the coast from Sandwood down to Kyle
