The Mainbrace CD is available now as we speak. As for the Pittenweem song, the missing words on the first verse are:
1. Oh, blithely shines the bonny sun all on the Isle of May,
And blithely runs the morning tide into St Andrews Bay.
Then up, gude man, the breeze is fair, and up, me braw bairns three;
There's gold in yonder bonny boat that sails so well the sea.
2. I've seen the waves as blue as air; I've seen them green as grass,
But I've never feared their heaving yet from Grangemouth to the Bass.
I've seen the sea as black as pitch; I've seen it white as snow,
But I've never feared its foaming yet though the winds blew high or low.
3. I never liked the landsmen's life. The earth is aye the same.
Give me the ocean for my dower, my vessel for my hame.
Give me the fields that no man ploughs, the farm that pays no fee.
Give me the bonny fish that glance so gladly through the sea.
4. The sun is up and around Inchkeith the breezes softly blaw.
The gude man has his lines aboard. Awa, me bairns, awa;
And ye'll be back by gloamin gray and bright the fires will glow,
And in your tales and songs we'll tell how weel the boat you row.
5. When life's last sun goes feebly down and death comes to our door,
When all the worlds a dream to us, we'll go to sea no more. REPEAT
This is one of our favourite songs. Hope you enjoy singing it as much as we do.
