Subject: Lyr Req: Loneliness -never far behind me,
Howdy folks,
I remember hearing this sung by a mudcatter at Bedworth last year, and wonder if the full lyrics are available.. here is the partial song about a Shepherd on a hill:

....long dark shadows
Though winter is the worst of all
When the fell is swept by snow and squall
I huddle by the dry stone wall
Loneliness grows up beside me

Loneliness -never far behind me
Loneliness -hand in hand beside me

And now the year has almost run
And I look back at all I've done
I turn and........

Is it a 'trad' or recently penned??
