Subject: Lyr Add: OH THE SEA IS CALLING (Kathi McKenzie)
From: GUEST,(Kathi McKenzie)
Date: 24 Sep 08 - 12:40 AM

Oh, The Sea Is Calling

I married a man, who worked on the land.
I was a lady born of sea and sand.
We traveled out west where the plains he's command.
But oh, the sea is calling.

And I remember the seagulls and the sweet salt sea air
The scent of it lingering so long in my hair.
And the memory of it's more than I can bear.
Oh, the sea is calling.

We built a fine house and I gave him a son
And a curly haired daughter we'd watch play and run
I'd sing them to sleep with tales of sea and sun
'Cause oh, the sea is calling

And I remember the seagulls and the sweet salt sea air
The scent of it lingering so long in my hair
And the memory of it's more than I can bear
Oh, the sea is calling.

We suffered through dust storms, blizzards and rain
Were joyful in pleasures, sorrowed in pain
But if I had the choice, I'd do it over again
Even though the sea is calling

And I remember the seagulls and the sweet salt sea air
The scent of it lingering so long in my hair
And the memory of it's more than I can bear
Oh, the sea is calling.

        Strange how your homeland, can pull your heart near
        To comfort your loved ones, the ones you hold dear
        It can ease all your loneliness, banish your fears
        With memories?. stories and songs

My husband is gone and my children are grown
They visit the seaside I again call my home.
My loves are my treasures, I cherish when alone
Oh, the sea is calling.


And I remember the seagulls and the sweet salt sea air
The scent of it lingering so long in my hair
And the memory of it's more than I can bear
Oh, the sea is calling. Can you hear the sea, calling?

KMc-

Is this your song?

If so, how did you come to compose it?

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

My guess is, Kathi did compose it, because she posted another of her compositions here recently:

BEER MAIDS OF VALHALLA - which I traced to another website that identifies her as the composer.

There's also WHERE'S YOUR KNICKERS LUCY - which Google doesn't find anywhere else.

A fine poem! Appeals to anyone who leaves their home environment for another.

Kathy, is there a tune someplace for that?
Also, it puts me in mind of a Mary Benson song, Me and the Bairnies at Home. I know she sings Beer Maids of Valhalla. Do you know her?
Blessings,
BArbara

Yes I wrote this, tune and all. I can get you the tune, it's on the By the Tale CD or you can call me and I'll whisper it in your ear. Thanks for the sweet comments.
