Lyric Spam 3: Ready for the Storm
Yes, all good (?) things come in threes... and here's my third sad Scottish sailor song. *S* Although it doesn't have to be taken literally - nor do I think it's meant to be. It's by Dougie (pronounded Doogie) MacLean, a great singer, fiddler and guitar player, and it's from his album Craeghie Dhu - a good album, which alternates his songs with traditional songs. This is one of his. A beautiful warm voice - check it out (link at bottom of page).


The waves crash in and the tide pulls out
It's an angry sea, but there is no doubt
That the lighthouse will keep shining out
To warn the lonely sailor

And the lightning strikes and the wind cuts cold
Through the sailor's bones to the sailor's soul
'Til there's nothing left that he can hold
Except the rolling ocean

But I am ready for the storm,
Yessir, ready
I am ready for the storm
I'm ready for the storm

Oh, give me mercy for my dreams,
'Cause every confrontation seems
To tell me what it really means
To be this lonely sailor

But when the sky begins to clear
The sun it melts away my fear
I'll cry a silent weary tear
For those who need to love me

But I am ready for the storm,
Yessir, ready
I am ready for the storm
I'm ready for the storm

The distance, it is no real friend,
And time will take its time again
And you'll find that, in the end,
It brings you me, the lonely sailor

And when you take me by your side
You love me warm, you love me,
And I should have realized
I had no reasons to be frightened

And I am ready for the storm,
Yessir, ready
And I am ready for the storm,
Yessir, ready
I am ready for the storm
I'm ready for the storm

Ros! I listened to 4 of the tracks on the Amazon page and loved them all -- especially "high flying seagull". And of course, with the mood I'm in, that one reminded me of the whole Legolas-seagulls thing. Thank you! I just may buy it. It would be lovely to listen to for relaxing, the same way I do with Thistle when it's on.

Oh, yes - that one is one he wrote as well! And Seanair's song is great, and Caledonia, and Bonnie Bessie Logan... oh, hell... it's all good! *G* I recommend it highly. I guess you've probably heard some of these on Thistle, then. So Thistle and Shamrock is still on these days?

P.S. -- Is it just me, or does VeryBlondBilly take some getting used to? *mourns the honey-colored hobbit-locks* :P

heeheehee ((((((Ros you silly)))))
I'm like that about Sean and *almost* like that about Lij... so I'm double silly!
Yes, Thistle's still on. Missed it tonight (where I am it's on Sunday nights at 8). *sheds small tear* What, you don't get it? *shocked* But you need it, precious!

Haven't really looked, to be honest! Yes, I should try to find it, now that I want to get back into appreciating folk music - thanks!
