Piper McCrimmon

registered writer/composer Hestor Nicol
Pub. Kerr's Music.


As I sit here alone, in the cool evening shade.
And look down on the glen where McCrimmon once played.
Like the cool crystal water, of yon mountain stream.
I hear the sweet melody, played in my dream....

Through the woodland, onto the shieling.
Once again I hear this refrain.
Through the forest, quietly steeling,
Ever enchanting I hear it again.

Lilting pipes are echoing eerliy,
Over valley, mountain and ben.
Piobaireachd sounding, restlessly, wearily.
Piper McCrimmon is haunting the glen.

Now I hear McCrimmon's farewell,
the golden sun sinks low in the west.
Still the woodland's under his spell
McCrimmon the piper has come home to rest.


Lilting pipes....
Piper McCrimmon is haunting the glen.
Piper McCrimmon is haunting the glen.
