Thread Name: Lyr Req: Braw Sailin' on the Sea
Subject: Lyr Add: BRAW SAILING (Eileen McGann's version)
Eileen McGann's version:
(from her album 'Journeys')

The letter came late yestere'en
The ship must sail the morn
'Alas', then cried my own true love
'That ever I was born'

And it's braw sailing on the sea
When wind and weather is fair
It's better being in my love's arm
And oh that I were there

The moon rose full o'er the deep
Where sea and sky do meet
But naught I heard but the murmuring wave
That broke upon my feet

Distant shores be fair and wild
And friends in ports be dear
But in every song and every glass
I wish my love were near

It's braw drinking Glasgow beer
It's better drinking wine
It's better being in my love's arms
Where I've been many's the time
