Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Auld Triangle
Subject: Lyr Add: THE OLD HOUSE (from Foster & Allen)
Is this one of them?

(As sung by Foster & Allen)


Lonely, I wandered through scenes of my childhood
They bring back to memory the happy days of yore
Gone are the old folk, the house stands deserted
No light in the window, no welcome at the door

Here's where the children played games on the heather
Here's where they sailed their wee boats from the berm
Where are they now? Some are dead, some have wandered
No more to their home will the children return

Lonely, the house now, and lonely, the moorland
The children have scattered, the old folk are gone
Why stand I here, like a ghost or a shadow?
It's time I was movin', it's time I passed on
