Thread Name: Lyr Req: Fiona and Shane (Anne Byrne)
Subject: Lyr Add: Fiona, Oh Fiona...
Does anybody recognize this song? I copied the lyrics down from a record from the local library (which it no longer has) and I can only find one part of them. (The other part seems to have been long lost...)

"The swaying pines of eventide,
The blue sky up above
All voices hushed and silent now
Fiona dreams of love
Her heart isfilled with grief and fear
Her dreams they are all in vain
She listens to the west wind sigh
And dreams that it speaks to her of Shane.

Fiona, oh Fiona, the westwind whispers plain;
Fiona, oh Fiona, I bring love greetings from Shane.

Shane is betrothed to another love
He tries to be true and kind
He'll not look in Fiona's pale green eyes
His for her he just can't seem to hide..."

The music was beautiful and haunting. I think I can still remember it but it would take time to work it out as I'm still learning my Finale program. Does anyone know this song???
