The Unseen Hours My Ain Countrie
Credits: Allan Cunningham; arranged by Malinky
Appears On: The Unseen Hours
Language: Scots-English


Oh the sun rises bright in France
And fair sets he
But he has lost the look he had
In my ain counterie
Gladness comes to many
As sadness comes to me
As I lookit ower the ocean wide
Tae my ain counterie

It's no my ain guilt
That saddens aye my ee
But the love I left in Gallowa
Wi' bonnie bairnies three
A hamely hert burns bonnie
As smiles my fair Mary
But I left my heart behind me
In my ain counterie

The bird comes back tae summer
And the blossom tae the tree
But I'll come back oh never
Tae my ain counterie
A'm leal tae high heaven
Which will aye be leal tae me
And I'll meet ye a' again soon
Frae my ain counterie
