Subject: Lyr Add: SANDWOOD DOWN TO KYLE (Dave Goulder)

One Monday morn as I walked out
The wild birds for to see
I met a man upon the road
And asked for charity

Come home with me and drink your fill
And comforts you shall find
And tell me why you walk the road
That leaves the hills behind

For time has spent the summer, sir
And soon the leaves will fall
And I hear the sound within the wind
That plays around your hall

The bird must flee the winter, sir
She cannot stay behind
To build her nest upon the snow
Nor can I look for mine

But if I had a hundred homes
To live in each a while
I'd build them all along the road
From Sandwood down to Kyle.

Great song!
