Subject: Lyr Req: Silver Sands (or) No more Sailing
From: GUEST,Shanty Kees

I recently heard The McCalmans sing a (for them)new song. I'm not sure of the title, don't know who wrote it and if the words that I have are correct. Is there anybody who can help? Thanks in advance.
Here are words, as far as I know:


====
Silver sands on the horizon, through the wave we're homeward bound,
As the gulls wheel above us, and the wind makes no sound,
There's the harbour in the distance, and I dreamed of this day,
For I'll love no other, and here I will stay.

Chorus:
No more sailing, never more to foreign lands,
For my love's a-waitin' by yon silver sands of (Morah????),
And I never leave those high hills again,
And I never leave those high hills again.

When the first snows of winter lay on the ben,
I gave my promise to come back again
Oft the seas were so cruel and the winds were so high,
And oft times we thought boys that here we would die

Fare thee well to my companions, may we meet again,
Every hour brings us closer to my journey's end,
Now the sun sinks behind me and it's light bades the shore,
And I'll sing of Scotland, and wander no more.

NO MORE SAILING
Written by Lex D. Hall
As sung by The McCalmans on "Coming Home: Live" (2009)

1. Silver sand's on the horizon; pull away; we're homeward bound,
As the gulls wheel above us, the wind makes no sound.
There the harbour in the distance and I've dreamed of this day [or "bay"?]*,
For I'll love no other, and here I will stay.

CHORUS: No more sailing, never more to foreign lands,
For my love's awaiting by yon silver sands
Of Morar,
And I'll never leave those high hills again,
And I'll never leave those high hills again.

2. When the first snows of winter lay on the ben,
I gave my promise to come back again,
But the seas were so cruel and the winds were so high
And oft times we thought, boys, that here we would die.

3. Farewell to my companions; may we meet again.
Every hour brings us nearer to my journey's end.
Now the sun sets behind me and its light bathes the shore,
And I'll sing of Scotland and wander no more.


[* There is a tidal bay at Morar.]

No More Sailing
Lyrics by Lex D. Hall

'The silver sands of Morar have inspired many songs of love and longing this is one of the best.'

Silver sands on the horizon pull away we're homeward bound
Where the gulls wheel above us but the wind makes no sound
There the harbour in the distance and I've dreamed of this day
For I'll love no other and here I will stay.

chorus:
No more sailing never more to foreign lands
For my love's awaiting by yon silver sands of Morar
And I'll never leave those high hills again
And I'll never leave those high hills again.

When the first snows of winter lay on the ben
I gave my promise to come back again
But the winds were so cruel and the seas were so high
And oft times we thought boys that here we would die.

Fare-the-well to my companions may we meet again
Every hour brings us nearer to my journey's end
Now the sun sets behind me and its light bathes the shore
And I'll sing of Scotland and wander no more.
