Thread Name: Origins: Hills of Isle au Haut (Gordon Bok)
Subject: RE: What are lyrics to Hills of Isle A Haut?
Kendall, what's on that island, anyhow? Can you give us a description? I didn't get past the lighthouse and the little town where the mail boat landed - and what I saw was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. There were a number of lumberjacks going to work on the mail boat, so I suppose there must be forest (unless it's gone now). Are there "yellow fields" like in the other Isle au Haut song?
