Does anyone have the words to the Ivan Drever song "The Varagen"?
The chorus is:
    Sail on sail on ye varagen sail
    carry your people to the old viking trail
    sail on sail on ye varagen sail
    sail on sail away.

And if you know where I could find lyrics to other songs of his, please say so. I don't see a site or a songbook of his work mentioned on the web.

Thanks.

Ivan Drever's song THE VARAGEN is on his album "The Orkney Years, Vol. II."

I also found there is an Orkney ferry called the Varagen. Is that what the song's about?

Thanks all. I have that album with the song, but there are words I can't make out. Yes, the ferry might have something to do with it...

I contacted Drever's website and he replied that he's planning to put out a book of lyrics sometime in 2010.

He did have a website, and was going to put the words of all his songs on it - mammoth task! However, don't think he got very far, and I can't find the website. Will ask him when I see him.

Just offhand I can't remember which CD it is on - Could be one of the Orkney Years ones - and in the early days he put the lyrics on the insert for the CD. Will have a look and see if I can find out from my CDs.

Thanks Kathy. Anything you can find out would be nice.
"mammoth task" is right - He's written a lot of stuff, and a lot of great stuff
