Subject: RE: Lyr Add: I Have Seen the Highlands (Matt McGinn)
The 4th verse as is more usually sung below. And there are some radically changed words in some of the other verses too, so I'll post the full set later.
The Irish and the English, the African and the Turk,
In a world of joy and of harmony together we must work,
On the shores of foreign brothers, we'll lay no robber's hand,
And all we ask is to toil and live in our own native land.
As relevant today as when it was written!
