Thread Name: Scottish Emigrant Songs
Subject: RE: Scottish Emigrant Songs
Andy M. Stewart's song, Ferry Me Over is beautiful and a true Scottish Emigrant song.

I love the last verse:

And by some friend or neighbor's side
Where the fires of love burn bright
With songs and stories I'll share my adventurin'
Until the morning light
And should some you man ask of me, "is it brave or wise to roam"
I'd bid him range the wide world all over
The better to know his own home
