Does anyone recognise the following song ,recently sung by Archie Fisher at Sidmouth, which begins with the following verse..

I am the moon that sails the night
I am the stars above you
I am the sun that brings the light
I am the one who loves you
I am the millwheel's water............

Thats all I can remember but I'd love to find the remaining lyrics and a CD recording if possible although I don't think Archie has recorded anything since 'Sunsets'.

Thanks

I have 3 Archie Fisher CD's - Sunsets, The Man with a Song (very forgetible) and 'Weel ye Gang'. Two out of three are terrific.

Never heard the song you mention. If other collections are available, I'd love to hear about it.

Three or four favorites: The Apprentice's Lament (?)/ We lived over yonder banks, I shall ride the black horse/all that I ask you, Lindsey, Wee; ye gang, love

Killer stuff. he wrote an intro to one of my favorite collections of Scottish song - Andy M Stewart's first collection.

Archie Fisher has a lot of newer songs which have never been put on recordings. I've heard tell he sings them in live performances.

hrothgleas - totally agree. 'Brookside' is another favourite.

Refreshing the thread in hope that maybe someone who didn't see it first time can help

I don't know how old this is, but Archie has released a "new" album called Windward something or other. it's fantastic, some new songs and some he recorded quite a while ago. The song you asked about is on it and it's gorgeous.

I think the song might be named "Before Eternity". Found the following:

There is a beautiful song by Archie Fisher called Before Eternity.

Here are just some of these most beautiful lines:

"I am the moon that sails the night/ I am the stars above you/ I am the sun that brings the light/ I am the one who loves you/ I am the wind that fills the sails/ I am the crop that never fails/ I am the sons and daughters/ I am the colors of the dawn/ I am the song birds chorus/I am the fields of ripening corn/ I am the ancient forest/ I am the whisper of the earth/ I am the new born crying/ I am the springtime of the earth/ I am the autumn dying/ I am the flame that lights the fire/ I am the noon tomorrow/ I am your greatest sorrow/ I am the child who takes your hand/ I am the one who understands/ I am the happy ending/ I am the secret of your soul/ I am the part/ I am the whole/ I am the life within you/ I am the stars above you/ I am the sun who brings the light/ I am the one who loves you..."


That was on
