Jock Tamson’s Bairns (Bruce W. Davies/Bill McArthur – Bulk Music Ltd.)

Noo people ha'e their diff'rences
God knows we're no' the same
Some seek for fame and fortune
An' some for work and hame
Some gi'e themsel's tae service
The sa't o' a' the earth
Some dream their dreams and scheme their schemes
An' toil for a' they're worth.

But fae Berwick up tae Stornoway
Fae Crail tae Newton Mearns
There's aye one thing that binds us a'
We're a' Jock Tamson's Bairns
There's aye one thing that binds us a'
We're a' Jock Tamson's Bairns.


Take pride in a' oor histories
The glories o' the past
Oor champions an' oor heroes
Have a' got names that last
But look forward more than backward
Tae the future, not the past
And give and share and build a world
Of friendship that will last.

But fae Berwick up tae Stornoway….

The world is getting' wee-er
Wi' the progress o' mankind
We're learnin' mair aboot the lands
And people we can find
But one thing I have noticed
From the things I've done and seen
We're a' Jock Tamson's Bairns
And ye ken, we've always been

Fae Cupar tae Nebraska
Fae Sydney up tae Ayr
In rain or shine, you'll always find
Jock Tamson's Bairns are there

Fae Berwick up tae Stornoway….

Annie Laurie (Lady John Scott/Trad. arr. Bruce W. Davies)

Maxwellton braes are bonnie, where early fa's the dew
And it's there that Annie Laurie gi'ed me her promise true.
Gi'ed me her promise true, which ne'r forgot will be
And for bonnie Annie Laurie, I'd lay me doon and d'e.

Her brow is like the sna' drift, her neck is like the swan
And her face it is the fairest that e'er the sun shone on
That e'er the sun shone on, and dark blue is her e'e
And for bonnie Annie Laurie, I'd lay me doon and d'e.

Like dew on the gowan lying is the fa' o' her fairy feet
And like winds in summer sighing, her voice is low and sweet.
Her voice is low and sweet and she's a' the world tae me
And for bonnie Annie Laurie, I'd lay me doon and d'e.

Home That I Love (Bruce W. Davies – Bulk Music Ltd.)

Gold, sandy beaches and hills clothed in green
Welcome me home from wherever I’ve been
To see peaceful waters and gulls high above
I can never stray far from the home that I love

Scotland, Scotland
Land of my fathers, land of my birth
Scotland, Scotland
Homeland for me forever


It’s many a year since I first fell in love
With these green rolling hills and blue skies above
I know I will travel for most of my life
But I’ll always return to my ain folk in Fife

Scotland, Scotland...

Can’t you hear a voice call you, you’ve heard it before
“It’s time to stop wandering, be restless no more,
A new dawn awaits you, a new day’s arrived
Belief has returned and the nation’s alive”.

Take a stroll in the Lomonds some warm summer’s day
Spend the evening in Falkland, you’ll wish you could stay
Caught and surrounded by things that have gone,
The years have passed by but the “magic” lives on
And on and on and on…

Scotland, Scotland...

Scotland, Scotland
Homeland for me forever

Loch Lomond (Trad. Arr. Bruce W. Davies)

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond
Where me and my true love were ever wont tae gae
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

Ye'll tak the high road and I'll tak the low road
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond


'Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen
On the steep, steep sides o' Ben Lomond
Where, in purple hue, the heiland hills we'd view
And the moon comin' oot in the gloamin'.

Ye'll tak the high road and I'll tak the low road...

The wee birdies sing and the wild flo'ers spring
And in sunshine the waters are sleepin'
But the broken he'rt it kens nae second spring again
And the waefu' ne'r cease fae their greetin'.

Ye'll tak the high road and I'll tak the low road...

On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

Skye Boat Song (Trad. arr. Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing
Onward! the sailors cry
Carry the lad that's born to be king
Over the sea to Skye


Loud the winds howl, loud the winds roar,
Thunderclaps rend the air.
Baffled, our foes stand on the shore,
Follow they will not dare.

Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing…

Many's the man fought on that day,
Well the claymore could wield.
When the night came, silently lay
Dead on Culloden field.

Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing…

Burned are our homes, exile and death
Scatter the loyal men.
Yet, e're the sword cool in it's sheath
Chairlie will come again

Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing…

Scots Wha’ Ha’e (Robert Burns/Trad. Arr. Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Scots, wha ha'e wi' Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to victory!
Now's the day, and now's the hour;
See the front o' battle lour;
See approach, proud Edward's power-
Chains and slavery!

Wha will be a traitor-knave?
Wha can fill a cowards grave?
Wha sae base as be a slave?
Let him turn and flee!
Wha for Scotland's King and law
Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
Freeman stand, or freeman fa',
Let him follow me!

By oppression's woes and pains!
By your sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!
Lay the proud usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in ev'ry foe!
Liberty's in ev'ry blow!-
Let us do or die!

My Love’s Like A Red, Red Rose ( Robert Burns/Trad. Arr. Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Oh, my love's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June
Oh, my love's like a melody
That's sweetly played in tune
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass
Sae deep in love am I
And I will love thee still, my dear
'Til a' the seas gang dry

'Til a' the seas gang dry , my dear
And the rocks melt wi' the sun
I will love the still, my dear
While the sands o' life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only love
And fare thee weel a while
And I will come again, my love
'Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile.

Granny Fraser’s Flittin’ (Trad. Arr. Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

It was on a Monday mornin', fu' weel I mind the scene
When Granny Fraser flitted frae Aboyne tae Aiberdeen,
The village folk, they a' turned oot tae see her on the road
The horse, it couldnae pu' the cairt, ye should have seen the load…

There was airmchairs, bathchairs, rockin' chairs as weel
Cradles, ladles, a pund o' fish for meal
There were woollen shawls, moth balls, jeely pans an' jaurs
An Grandpa near fell aff the tap wi' Granny's chest o' drawers.
There were wee pots, tea pots, a pair o' wally dugs
Big pots, flouer pots, Granny's cheeny jugs
There were stew pots, what-nots, ye ken the kind I mean
At Granny Fraser's flittin frae Aboyne tae Aiberdeen.

Dunc McNabb, the polisman cried for volunteers
It was the first time he had ta'en his jaiket aff in years
Tae get the donkey movin', ev'ry man did play his pairt
They just got half way up the street when a wheel fell aff the cairt…

An' there was face towels, auld bowls, litterin' the street
Cla'es props, alarm clocks roond aboot their feet
There were golf clubs, wash tubs litterin' the lane
An' Grandpa's ne'erday bottle, it was runnin' doon the drain
There was fur coats, porridge oats, mixed up wi' the glaur
A big spear souvenir frae the Zulu war
There were antique tight breeks o' eighteen seventeen
At Granny Fraser's flittin' frae Aboyne tae Aiberdeen.

Geordie Broon, the blacksmith, he weighed near twenty stone
He lifted up the cairt himsel an' pit the wheel back on
He got the donkey movin', 'mid a' the scoffs an' jeers
An' as the lorry left the street he got three rousin' cheers…

An' there was old spats, tile hats, some things I couldnae say
Tin trays, auld cla'es she wouldnae throw away
There was floor mats, corn grub mixed up wi the rest
An' bottles o' some nippy stuff my Granny liked the best
There were lawn mowers, plus fours tied on wi' a rope
A big flag some wag had tied tae the top
On the tail-board, on board, lookin' like the Queen
Was Granny Fraser flittin' a' the road tae Aiberdeen.

Jock o’ Hazeldean (Sir Walter Scott/Trad. Arr. Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Why weep ye by the tide, lady
Why weep ye by the tide?
I’ll wad ye tae my youngest son
And ye shall be his bride
And ye shall be his bride, lady
Sae comely tae be seen
But aye she loot the tears doon fa’
For Jock o’ Hazeldean.

Now let this wilfu’ grief be done
Come dry yer cheek sae pale
Young Frank is chief of Errington
And Lord of Langleedale
His step is first in peacefu’ ha’
His sword in battle keen
But aye she loot the tears doon fa’
For Jock o’ Hazeldean.

A chain o’ gowd ye shall na’ lack
Nor braid tae bind yer hair
Nor mettled hound nor managed hawk
Nor palfry fresh and fair
And ye, the fairmaist o’ them a’
Shall ride oor forest Queen
But aye she loot the tears doon fa’
For Jock o’ Hazeldean.

The Kirk was decked at morning tide
The taper glimmered fair
The priest and bridegroom wait the bride
And dame and knight are there
They sought her baith by bower and ha’
The lady wasna’ seen
She’s ower the border and awa’
Wi’ Jock o’ Hazeldean

She’s ower the border and awa’
Wi’ Jock o’ Hazeldean

Smuggler (Trad. Arr Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

The boat rides south o' Ailsa Craig in The waning o' the light
There's thirty men in Lendalfoot tae mak oor burden light
And there's thirty horse in Hazelholm wi' the halters on their heids
All set this night upon yon height if wind and water speed.

Smugglers drink of the Frenchman's wine
And the darkest night is the smuggler's time
Away we ran from the excise man
It's the smuggler's life for me, it's the smuggler's life for me


Oh lass, ye ha'e a cosy bed and cattle ye ha'e ten
Can ye no' live a lawful life and live wi' lawful men
But must I use such hamely goods when there's foreign gear sae fine
Must I drink at the waterside, and France sae full of wine.

Smugglers drink of the Frenchman's wine...

Oh weel I like to see ye Kate, wi' the bairnie on thy knee
But my heart is now wi' the gallant crew that plough through the angry sea
The bitter gale, the tightest sail, wi' the sheltered bay our goal
It's the wayward life, it's the smuggler's strife, it's the joy of the smuggler's soul

Smugglers drink of the Frenchman's wine...

And when, at last, the sun comes up and the cargo safely stored
Like sinless saints, to church we'll go, God's mercy to afford
And there's champagne fine for communion wine and the Parson drinks it too
With a sly wink prays, forgive these men for they know not what they do.

Smugglers drink of the Frenchman's wine...

It's the smuggler's life for me, it's the smuggler's life for me.

Ae Fond Kiss (Robert Burns/Trad. Arr. Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever
Ae fareweel, and then forever
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans, I'll wage thee
Who can say that fortune grieves him
While the star of hope, she leaves him
Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me
Dark despair, around benights me.

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy
Naethin' could resist my Nancy
But tae see her was tae love her
Love but her, and love forever.
Had we never loved sae kindly
Had we never loved sae blindly
Never met, or never parted
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest
Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest
Thine be ilka joy and treasure
Peace, enjoyment, love and pleasure.
Ae fond kiss, and then we sever
Ae fareweel, alas, forever
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans, I'll wage thee.

My Bonnie Mary (Robert Burns/Trad. Arr. Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Gae bring tae me a pint o’ wine
And fill it in a silver tassie
That I may drink before I go
A service tae my bonnie lassie
The boat rocks at the pier o’ Lieth
Fu’ loud the wind blows frae the Ferry
And the ship sails by the Berwick Law
And I maun leave my bonnie Mary

The trumpets sound and the banners fly
And glitterin’ spears are ranked and ready
An’ the sounds o’ war are heard afar
And the battle closes deep and bloody
It’s not the roar of sea on shore
Wad mak me langer wish tae tarry
Nor sounds o’ war that’s heard afar
But leavin’ the my bonnie Mary

Gae bring tae me a pint o’ wine
And fill it in a silver tassie
That I may drink before I go
A service tae my bonnie lassie

When You and I Were Young (Butterfield/Johnson/arr. B. W. Davies)

I wandered today to the hill, Maggie,
To watch the scene below
The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie,
As we did in days long ago.
The green grove is gone from the hill, Maggie,
Where first the daisies sprung;
The creaking old mill is still, Maggie,
Since you and I were young.

They say that I'm feeble with age, Maggie,
My steps are less sprightly than then,
My face is a well-written page, Maggie,
And time all alone was the pen.
They say we are agèd and grey, Maggie,
As dated as songs that we’ve sung,
Still to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie,
When you and I were young.

Still to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie,
When you and I were young.

Forever Again (Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

I don’t know how it happened
Don’t know where we went wrong
Didn’t know that I could feel this
After loving for so long
You said “Nothing lasts forever”
Were you making plans to leave?
I can’t straighten out my feelings
I don’t know what I believe

But I need to believe in forever again
I need to know hope like we had way back when
I need to believe in forever again
Or I’ll lose my best friend


We started out so hopeful
The world was ours to share
We helped each other live again
We loved without a care
At first we grew together
But lost something on the way
Lone paths and new directions
Should I go or can I stay

For I need to believe in forever again
I need to know hope like we had way back when
I need to believe in forever again
Or I’ll lose my best friend


I don’t wanna leave
Don’t know if I can stay
Don’t wanna believe
It could turn out this way

But I need to believe in forever again
I need to know hope like we had way back when
I need to believe in forever again
Or I’ll lose my best friend


Don’t wanna lose my best friend

When I Hear Your Name (Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

She says, “Will you sign this album?”
And I ask her what’s her name.
I hear your name from her lips
But it doesn’t sound the same.
My mind begins to wander
To places far away
Where we walked and where we talked
And I wish we were today.

Then she asks me how I’m doin’,
I say, “Life is goin’ well,
And where this life will lead
No one can really tell.”
She says, “Thanks for being here tonight
Your music fills my dreams”
But sometimes somethin’ happens
And somehow it just seems…

That it’s always the same
When I hear your name
I’m with you
‘Though you’re half a world away
Like a moth to a flame
When I hear your name
I’m drawn to you
In such a special way
Without you I’m half, I’m not whole
Like a body without any soul
It’s always the same
When I hear your name.


Departure lounge is filling
An announcement fills the air
I hear your name again
But I know that you’re not there
I wonder, “Do you miss me
The way that I miss you?
And when you hear my name,
Do your thoughts wander, too?”
For it’s always the same
When I hear your name
I’m with you
‘Though you’re half a world away
Like a moth to a flame
When I hear your name
I’m drawn to you
In such a special way
Without you I’m half, I’m not whole
Like a body without any soul


INSTRUMENTAL

When I hear your name.
Without you I’m half, I’m not whole
Like a body without any soul
It’s always the same
When I hear your name.

It’s always the same…

On My Way To You (Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

I could be driftin’ over deserts, soaring over seas
High above the highlands, anywhere I please
Racin’ with the sunrise, ‘way up above the blue
Anywhere I’m flyin’, I’m on my way to you

I could be driving on a highway or down a country lane
Motorway or Interstate, I’m on the road again
Feedin’ all my senses on a tree-lined avenue
Wherever I am drivin’, I’m on my way to you

They say, “Home is where the heart is”,
“Wherever I lay my Hat”
Home to me is anywhere
Anywhere you’re at


I could be walkin’ in a woodland or struttin’ down a street
Hikin’ on the high road with a smile at folk I meet
Strollin’ along, takin’ in the view
Wherever I am walkin’, I’m on my way to you

They say, “Home is where the heart is”,
“Wherever I lay my Hat”
Home to me is anywhere
Anywhere you’re at

Flying Colours (Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

Born into a world
Uncertain but at peace
Born with a spirit
Hungry for release
Not what you'd call a rebel
But she wanted wings to fly
The times they were a-changin'
She was reaching for the sky

She didn't know the answer
So she had to question, why?
She wanted to make love not war
She didn't want to die
She believed that song could change the world
She had to play her part
'We Shall Overcome'
Was the first she learned by heart

She was passing
With flying colours
With her old guitar
And flowers in her hair
She was passing
With flying colours
Passing colour
Everywhere

She learned from what she saw
She learned from the past
She learned from her children
And the truths she knew would last
She marched and she petitioned
With no hatred in her heart
Watched as walls came tumbling down
And knew she'd played her part

She was passing
With flying colours
To build a world where people love
And nations care
She was passing
With flying colours
Passing colour
Everywhere

Her friends all thought it so unfair
When the doctor broke the news
After all that she had fought for
This battle she would lose
But with courage and with dignity
Her back against the wall
Her smile told us, 'Carry It On'
She still inspires us all

Now she's passing
With flying colours
As her spirit soars
And fills the air
Now she's passing
With flying colours
Passing colour
Everywhere

Yes she's passing
With flying colours
Passing colour
Everywhere

Will You Take Me Back Again... (Sandra Davies - MCPS)

Will you take me back again…someday?
Will you take me take me back again so we can play
Where the years fall from our shoulders
Where the sun will always shine
Will you take me back again…someday


Seems forever and a day since last I saw you
When really it was only yesterday
We laughed with childlike fun
Dancing in the summer sun
Saying more than words could ever say

Will you take me back again…someday?
Will you take me take me back again so we can play
Where the years fall from our shoulders
Where the sun will always shine
Will you take me back again…someday


Remember when we searched for hidden meaning
In a song you swore was written just for me
I believed it to be true
I was so in love with you
Now it’s just a fading memory

Will you take me back again…someday?
Will you take me take me back again so we can play
Where the years fall from our shoulders
Where the sun will always shine
Will you take me back again…someday


Do you think we can begin a new tomorrow?
As we drift along in dreams of yesterday
Hold my hand and say hello
Yes we’ll take it nice and slow
Kiss me in your soft and gentle way

(Instrumental)
Will you take me back again…someday?
Will you take me take me back again so we can play
Where the years fall from our shoulders
Where the sun will always shine
Will you take me back again<
Will you take me back again
Will you take me back again…

Climb Your Mountain (Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

Climb your mountain, reach for the other side
You can find your own way with love and truth your guide


A mountain stands before us
And it’s getting in the way
Of a place we’d like to get to
A place we’d like to stay
We can choose to face the journey
Or stay right where we are
Is standing still an option
When you know we’ve come so far

It’s not an easy road to travel
We should have known it from the start
But reason takes a back seat
When you’re following your heart
Let love be your reason
For love is truth and light
Step out on the journey
Take the darkness from your night

Climb your mountain, reach for the other side
You can find your own way with love and truth your guide


Sometimes we feel like quitting
Looking for an easy ride
Give in to the mountain
Forget the other side
But we’ll never taste sweet victory
Or know all we can do
Unless we face up to the mountain
As it faces me and you

Climb your mountain, reach for the other side
You can find your own way with love and truth your guide


Climb your mountain, reach for the other side
You can find your own way with love and truth your guide

Amazing Grace (John Newton/Trad/arr. Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
‘Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace shall lead me home

When we’ve been there a thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun

Perfect For You (Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

It doesn’t seem
So long ago
We stepped out on a road
No-one will ever know
The little things we say the little things we do
The little magic moments
That say “I love you, too”

No-one’s come this close
Or gone so far
I could never even wish for more
Than what you are
Gonna spend the rest of my life
Tryin’ to be
As perfect for you
As you are for me


When times were tough
We made it through
When we had less than nothin’
I thanked God for you
The times you took my hand
The times you took me high
The times we took a stand
The times we touched the sky

I believe in you
You believe in me, too
When I think of us
There’s nothin’ I would rather do
Than spend the rest of my life…

Without you
I feel nothing
But havin’ you near
Makes my heart sing

Gonna spend the rest of my life…

I’ll spend the rest of my life…

Perfect for you
As you are for me

Warm September Days (Sandra Davies)

Warm September days,
Long shadows dance and play on fields of golden corn
Pale skies of blue
Reflect a longing deep inside of you

Can it be that summer has now gone
When I still feel the warm September sun
Can’t you hear the earth beat like a drum
As it speaks to you and tells you what it’s done


Gold Autumn leaves
Blow with a gentle breeze along this broken road
Trees, old and bare
Tell us their story but do we really care?

Can it be that summer has now gone…

“Winter plants for sale”
A sign hanging on a rail that tells of what’s to come
Long bitter days
Seems like for ever, they’ll decide to stay

Can it be that summer has now gone…

Warm September days,
Long shadows dance and play on fields of golden corn

Under A Jersey Moon (Bruce W. Davies - MCPS/PRS)

I came here last night
When the moon shone so bright
It seemed heaven was here by my side
Saw beautiful places, warm friendly faces
By an ocean, moonlit and wide
But an ocean can’t go on forever
And I know I’ll be crossing it soon
And in all that I do, I’m thinking of you
Under a Jersey moon

Under a Jersey moon
Under a Jersey moon
In all that I do, I’m thinking of you
Under a Jersey moon


I watched the sun rise
Washed sleep from my eyes
And then took a stroll by the shore
Had coffee on the Boardwalk
Wished that we could talk
And found myself missing you more
But this loneliness won’t last forever
For I know I’ll be holding you soon
And in all that I do, I’m thinking of you
Under a Jersey moon

Under a Jersey moon…

In all that I do, I’m thinking of you
Under a Jersey moon

Maisie's Song (Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Wooden floor, a musty smell
Little brown chairs I remember well
Crayoned pictures upon the wall
I can’t forget that little hall

And the lady who seemed forever old
Living the stories she always told
Of love that still goes on and on
In the place where Auntie Maisie’s gone


Collection box upon the stage
A piano from another age
Little books, with pages torn
Some were missing, some just worn

And the lady who seemed forever old…

I didn’t understand it all way back then
When we sang about Zacheus and Fishers of Men
But the seeds were sown in that little room
And I remember when…every now and again

Sometimes I wander, sometimes I stray
Sometimes I’ve been so far away
Sometimes in deep despair and gloom
My thoughts return to that little room

And the lady who seemed forever old…

Yes that lady who seemed forever old
Living the stories she always told

For The Ones That You Love (Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

He’s on the road
Twelve hours every day
He can’t help believin’
He’s workin’ his life away
He’d rather be fishin’
But when push comes to shove
You do the things you have to
For the ones that you love

Laundry and cleaning
The school run and more
A job that drains her
She asks “What’s it for?”
But the answer is simple
For when push comes to shove
You do the things you have to
For the ones that you love

The ones that you love
The ones that you love
You do the things you have to
For the ones that you love


Nappies and nosebleeds
Tantrums and tears
Dentists and doctors
Irrational fears
You’re there when they need you
For when push comes to shove
You do the things you have to
For the ones that you love

The ones that you love…

A long time ago
Before you and I A man left his home In the sweet bye and bye He hung on a cross For when push comes to shove You do the things you have to For the ones that you love
The ones that you love…


The ones that you love…

Oh Holy Night (A. Adam/J.S. Dwight arranged and orchestrated by Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Oh holy night the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
‘Til He appeared and the soul felt it’s worth
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices
Oh, yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel voices
Oh, night divine
Oh, night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night when oh night divine


Truly he taught to love one another
His law is love and His Gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raising
Let all within us praise His holy name

Christ is the Lord
Oh praise His name forever
His power and glory
Yet the more proclaim
His pow’r and glory
Yet the more proclaim

Oh, night divine
Oh, night when Christ was born
Oh night
Oh holy night, oh, night divine

Warm September Days (Sandra Davies)

Warm September days,
Long shadows dance and play on fields of golden corn
Pale skies of blue
Reflect a longing deep inside of you

Can it be that summer has now gone
When I still feel the warm September sun
Can’t you hear the earth beat like a drum
As it speaks to you and tells you what it’s done


Gold Autumn leaves
Blow with a gentle breeze along this broken road
Trees, old and bare
Tell us their story but do we really care?

Can it be that summer has now gone…

“Winter plants for sale”
A sign hanging on a rail that tells of what’s to come
Long bitter days
Seems like for ever, they’ll decide to stay

Can it be that summer has now gone…

Warm September days,
Long shadows dance and play on fields of golden corn

Livin' To Love, Lovin' To Live (RR016CD)

Lead Me Home (Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

How often have we said “If only”?
While living with the words we didn’t say
How often can two people feel so lonely?
When love is just a heartbeat away

You’re with me in first thought every morning
And as my eyes surrender day to night
‘Though miles and circumstances come between us
I’m with you and you’re always in my sight

Let’s lead each other in a dance
Embrace the gift and take this second chance
We’ve spent too many nights alone
Take me in your arms and lead me home


We caused each other pain and sorrow
But through it all we’ve seen our love survive
We’ve learned some painful lessons on our journey
And grown to see our loving come alive

Let’s lead each other in a dance…

Let’s lead each other in a dance…


Lead me home…

(You'll Always Be) An Angel In My Eyes (Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

This morning, when you looked in the mirror
You said, “I don’t like what I see”
I must have seen a different picture
For what I saw looked perfect to me
You wished you looked much younger
Like when you were twenty-three
I know you were beautiful then
But it’s the way you are, I love to see

‘Though you say you’re gettin’ no younger
You’ll always be an angel in my eyes
You know I’m not the first one to tell you
To laugh at how the mirror tells lies


And, when I say you’re beautiful
I’m making no excuses for age
For what I see in the mirror
Makes me glad we’ve reached this stage
Where we’ve lived and loved a lot
Been through the high and the low
And when I see my face in your eyes
Can’t help but love you and I want you to know

‘Though you say you’re gettin’ no younger…

You melted me the moment I set eyes on you
And even more today
Though love’s no longer new

And I think of my Father and Mother
And the love that filled their life
They only had eyes for each other
A devoted husband and wife
But she was always too fat or too thin
Either too dark or too grey
But she was always perfect for him
And it’s always gonna be that way

‘Though you say you’re gettin’ no younger…

‘Though you say you’re gettin’ no younger…

Then There Was You (Sandra Davies MCPS)

Thought I had it all wrapped in my heart
And that dreams never came true
Felt that love and life were just passing by me
Then there was you

Felt the winds of change blow through the darkness
Watched as morning sun banished the dew
When I asked myself, how could this happen?
The answer was you

You fill my life with real love
Complete love, that’s true
There are no words to tell my love
How I feel for you


When you're far away I still feel you near me
The unspoken word, holding us true
Though the night is long, it won't last forever
I’ll wake to find you

You fill my life with real love…

Thought I had it all wrapped in my heart…

Indiana Sky (Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

I can’t bear to see you hurtin’
And it hurts to see you cry
But every time I travel
There comes the question, “Why?”
But always there’s the answer
And it’s comin’ ‘round again
To use the gifts we’re given
Sometimes causes pain so…

Here am I under an Indiana sky
Wishin’ I was there with you an’
Always wondrin’ how you’re doin’
Here am I with the age-old question, “Why?”
But the answer’s still the same
It’s just part of the game
And I couldn’t have it any other way


And honey, when I call you
I love to hear your smile
The lovin’ in your voice
Keeps me goin’ all the while
That’s why I feel you near me
Wherever I may be
An’ I hope that when you hear me
You will know and see that…

Here am I under an Indiana sky…

You’re the only one to give me chills on a warm September day
With words you feel inside but only your eyes can say

Here am I under an Indiana sky…

No I couldn’t have it any other way

When I Found You (Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

Took a long road to find me
With dark days behind me
But sunshine has broken through
I found me when I found you

I’ve not been the man I could be
As I searched for what I could be
But love has shown me what to do
I found love when I found you

You drove away the darkness
You help me see the light
Heal the hurts that haunt me
Tell me it’s all right


I somehow knew life could be like this
But begun to doubt I could feel like this
But journey’s end has come in view
I found home when I found you

You drove away the darkness…

Took a long road to find me
With dark days behind me
But sunshine has broken through
I found me when I found you

I found me when I found you

I Shouldn't Be Here (Bruce W. and Sandra Davies MCPS/PRS)

Thought I had the lot
A beautiful, painted cot
It was white with little picture painted in lead
I licked it, chewed it, slept in it, too
What would you expect me to do?
In theory, I should have grown up dead

I shouldn’t be here
After all that I’ve been through
I shouldn’t be here
I’m relieved to be seein’ you
I shouldn’t be here
I should have lived my life in fear
After all that I’ve been through
I shouldn’t be here


Then we didn’t have TV
‘Till I was two or three
And then we’d only “Watch With Mother”
What did Andy and Teddy do?
In the basket with Looby Lou
Was this an early pilot for “Big Brother”?

I shouldn’t be here…

As a special treat
I’d be sittin’ in the front seat
With my “stick on” wheel I’d be drivin’
No “Gameboy” to distract my eye
I was countin’ Cortinas and playin’ “I Spy”
It’s a miracle that I’m still survivin’

I shouldn’t be here…

I played with pals with a can or a ball
Learned to swim by the harbour wall
Ran home from school and played till dark every day
Wearing my anorak by the hood
On my “Chopper”, I was fast, I was feeling good
I wouldn’t have chosen any other way

I shouldn’t be here…

These days are gone
But the memories linger on
But, when I’m old I’ll still recall
The happiest days I ever had
I’m beginning to sound just like my Dad
The kids today don’t know they’re born at all

I shouldn’t be here…

After all that I’ve been through
I shouldn’t be here

I'll Be Here (Bruce W. Davies MCPS/PRS)

If ever you’re in darkness
Let me be your light
If ever all seems wrong
Let me make it right
And if ever you feel lonely,
That comfort’s never near
Never fear
I’ll be here

If ever you feel down
Let me raise you high
If ever you are all at sea
I’ll come sailing by
And ‘though your dreams may frighten
And even cause a tear
Never fear
I’ll be here

Here, here
Wherever you go, I’ll go, too
Here, here
Wherever you are I’m with you


So if ever you’re in darkness
Let me be your light
If ever all seems wrong
Let me make it right
And if ever you feel lonely
That comfort’s never near
Never fear
I’ll be here

Never fear
I’ll be here
